Regional Variations (2)

by Derek Marlowe
Starring Peter McEnery as Modigliani

Modigliani died in 1920 at 35, of drink, drugs, malnutrition, and tuberculosis. The true cause of death was neglect and frustration. Desperately wanting recognition, this extraordinarily talented Jewish-Italian painter in his lifetime couldn't give away his pictures. Today they are worth hundreds of thousands of pounds. Tonight's film dramatically re-creates the last phase of Modi's stormy life: the passionate affair with Beatrice Hastings, and his deeply moving love for Jeanne Hebuterne with its tragic consequence.
