Antonio Banderas will play Pablo Picasso


Antonio Banderas will play the famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso in Carlos Suara's 33 Days. This is reported by the Variety edition.

The movie will take place in 1937, when Picasso created perhaps his most famous painting - Guernica. The joint French-Spanish project will be released in summer 2013. Its budget is estimated at eight million dollars.

Recall that the painting was commissioned by the government of the Spanish Republic in the style of Cubism and illustrates the barbaric bombing of the Basque city of Guernica, carried out in April 1937 by the Luftwaffe.

As a result of a massive air raid, the city was practically razed to the ground, and thousands of its inhabitants were buried under the rubble.

This catastrophe made a stunning impression on the artist. According to eyewitnesses, he worked on the painting for about a month, 10-12 hours a day. " Guernica " was not appreciated by many of Picasso's contemporaries, but is now considered one of the most outstanding works of the artist.
