This is one of my favorite movies of all time and was released in two versions - with La Belle Noiseuse being the longer of the two.
I definitely recommend picking a quiet evening - perhaps with a glass of wine in hand - - and enjoying.
This is a story of an artist (Michel Piccoli) - who after several years of retirement - - is coaxed by his friend to return to his craft to paint his unrealized masterpiece. He chooses - as his model - a beautiful temperament full young woman - rather than his wife (Jane Birkin).
Several beautifully interwoven themes of human emotions are evident - jealously - frustration - longing - triumph and finally understanding.
For those of you who enjoy this film - I would also recommend the classic: Les Enfants du Paradis (Children of Paradise).
