The last of the great sculptors of Montparnasse, Swiss-born Alberto Giacometti came to Paris after World War I and stayed until his death in 1966. For many, his brilliant Surrealist paintings and sculptures were matched by his exceptional personal qualities. Said Mauriac, "One could watch and listen to him all night." It is just so in this rare interview, filmed in 1963 at Giacometti's studio on the rue Hyppolite Maindron. Surrounded by the lean and long sculpted figures that are his trademark, the reclusive genius speaks frankly about his compulsion to work, his doubts, and his dreams. Privileged, we glimpse beyond the narrow room where he lived so frugally, and into his uniquely expansive mind.
