Picasso's complex and tormented life was full of dark secrets and failed relationships. McElhone's charismatic performance provides the appropriate artistic edge for the story of this brilliant and tortured artist. Her voice is comparable to warm and soothing brush strokes as she describes Picasso's passionate need for young women as lovers and models. Recreating quarrels between the artist and jealous women, McElhone reveals the sadistic side of his personality. Picasso's rebellious nature as a communist, husband, lover, father and artist is uniquely and eloquently interpreted by the narrator, who graces the listener with an in-depth depiction of a tortured egocentric.
