♦ Michelangelo (Il Peccato) **
by Andreï Konchalovsky
Russian-Italian film, 2:16 a.m.
Andrei Konchalovsky chose the year 1512, when Michelangelo had just completed the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and resumed his project for a monumental tomb commissioned by Pope Julius II to portray the artist, as brilliant as he was tormented. His painting of a Renaissance where violence and filth rub shoulders with the sublime conceals few surprises.
