Caravaggio

A film by Derek Jarman

Back
Derek Jarman struggled for seven years to bring his portrait of the great Renaissance painter Michelangelo Caravaggio to the screen, producing a critically acclaimed masterwork and a powerful meditation on sexuality, criminality, and art.
1610. Caravaggio is wanted for murder and has been on the run for four years. He is dying and being cared for by his young apprentice, John Jerusaleme, a deaf mute who Caravaggio took in as a boy. Caravaggio narrates episodes of his life, and muses on his approaching death.
