The film explores the complicated and adventurous existence of Michelangelo Merisi, aka Caravaggio, already a pop star in his day, told in his deep contradictions and in the darkness of his impenetrable torment. Rebellious and restless, devoted and outrageous, independent and transgressive, the Caravaggio who stages Placido is a cursed performer of absolute talent, but above all a rock star ante literam, a rebel for no reason forced to face the troubling consequences of a reckless life. see – with its wives and its demons – in which genius and recklessness coexist to give us a character from the time and a fascinating and universal icon.
