"Scandal at the Grand Palais! The vernissage of the retrospective celebrating the hundredth anniversary of Modigliani's disappearance is brutally interrupted by the police. The curator is suspected of being involved in a major art deal. The centerpiece, Reclining Nude, is believed to be a fake.

in brief

the show

Under pressure, Salomé, art critic for the daily Le Siècle, has two hours to write an article about the event. She unwillingly joins forces with Arthur, a newcomer to the paper. Even though they have nothing in common, like detectives they retrace the incredible story of the famous painting painted by Modigliani in poverty, and sold a century later for 170 million dollars at auction.

Salomé and Arthur take us on an improbable journey through time, from the Paris of the Great War to the present day. This plunge into the world of an artist on a constant quest for freedom will upset the journalists, calling into question their relationship with their own freedom of expression.
