The film, which takes its title from Modigliani’s nickname, is set in 1916, in the midst of the First World War, as revealed by IMDb. Modigliani, a painter from Livorno who emigrated to Paris, considers himself a failure and one night, during a nervous breakdown, destroys a fashionable restaurant in Paris. On the run from the police, he decides to leave the French capital with the help of his talented but bohemian friends Maurice Utrillo and Chaim Soutine. He asks his art dealer, Léopold Zborowski, for money, but is told that he cannot leave because an influential art collector is coming to Paris to buy his works. Modigliani’s lover, Beatrice Hastings, who believes in his genius, convinces him to meet the collector in person.
