The life of Pablo Picasso.

Well the life of Pablo Picasso as if re-written by Monty Python anyway. Gently comic adventures of the great man with the odd blob of surrealism. Gösta Ekman is great in the title role. The ending rather sweet.

Wilfrid Brambell as Alice B. Toklas must be one of cinema's most bizarre casting choices simultaneously appalling and hilarious. He seems to be having a ball.

Everyone past Toivo Pawlo is uncredited (and she doesn't seem to appear), so treat with distrust.
