Surrounded by mystery and controversy throughout his long career, the painter Balthus is now recognized as the 20th century's great master of figurative art. This beautifully filmed documentary brings the viewer into the world of the 89 year-old artist, centering on a sprawling, 18th century chalet in the French Alps that serves as both home and studio. In addition to reminiscences by the artist himself, friends and family together with art historians fill in the back-story of Balthus's remarkable career.
