Caravaggio would be proud of - in fact, I think if he were reincarnated into this lifetime he would BE the protagonist! Who, by the way, is played superbly. Truly he is both within and outside of the art. His character, being adored for his beauty, is authentically tortured because of it. The art history references are both dead-serious and light-hearted at times. And the story moves just like any great work of art: light, dark, contrast, highlight, a touch of color - masterpiece.
