Stanley Tucci explores the life and work of the artist he loves. Hollywood actor Stanley Tucci has long been obsessed with the great modernist artist Alberto Giacometti. Growing up in New York with an art teacher father, Stanley was told at a young age that Giacometti's work represented a unique search for the truth of the human condition. Having been an admirer of the art for forty years, Stanley has now taken his obsession one step further - writing, producing and directing a feature film about the artist starring Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush. In this documentary special, Stanley explores the life and work of the artist he loves and reveals the extraordinary journey of discovery that he had to go on to make his film, from meeting Giacometti's models to hiring artists to produce fakes of some of his greatest artworks. Meeting experts, people that knew Giacometti and revisiting the places he made his work, Stanley will reveal why Giacometti was one of the most relentlessly honest and enquiring artistic minds to have ever lived - a man ridden by doubt in his own abilities, and yet compelled to keep producing sculptures and paintings which are now hailed as some of the greatest of the twentieth century, and which command prices of tens of millions of pounds.
