The Mona Lisa Myth (2014)
1h 26min · Documentary, Drama, History · 1 January 2014
Leonardo Da Vinci arrives, penniless and without a patron, in Florence after 18 years as a court artist in Milan. Desperate for funds, he reluctantly agrees to paint a Florentine housewife, Mona Lisa, in exchange for a shot at winning a lucrative contract from the city of Florence. But when Leonardo meets Lisa, a beautiful 25-year old, she makes such a powerful impression on him that he paints not one, but two versions of her portrait--one which emerges from a Swiss vault in 2012. 'The Mona Lisa Myth' an Italian-American co-pro narrated by Morgan Freeman, was shot on location in Tuscany. It also features Leonardo experts from France, Germany, the UK, the USA and Italy.
