Cinema: Calvet

November 24, 2011

24 November

United Kingdom 2011, 86 mins
Director: Dominic Allan

French painter Jean Marc Calvet recounts his incredible life story as a former Cannes bodyguard who abandoned his family, robbed a Miami mobster, hid out in Central America and at the age of 38 overcame addictions through an extraordinary metamorphosis, in which he began to paint.

That was seven years ago. Now his intricate paintings sell for five figures, but he remains desperate to reconcile with his son he left behind.
