This gay-oriented drama centers on the life and exploits of Andrew, an aspiring painter. Still living at home with his mother Genna, an avant garde actress, constantly rejected by art schools, and without a lover, Andrew decides to enter a contest in hopes of winning a six month stay in Kenya. Though things aren't great for Andrew, neither are they wonderful for his lesbian friend Lucy who constantly bickers with her lover Ingrid. Lucy complicates Andrew's life when she introduces him to the suspicious-looking, enigmatic Jerry. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide

Art is all-important to NEVER MET PICASSO. The characters make it, study it, sell it, discuss it and worry over it intensely and constantly. (And the art includes not just painting, sculpture and collage but theatre, performance art and even channeling dead artists to learn what they have to say!) I would guess that all this will make the movie resonate a bit more for folk who care about art, even if they finally find the film--as I did--half-baked and a bit too incoherent. The characters verge on being interesting but we never learn enough about them to care much. What saves the film from complete failure is its quiet, non-pushy tone. It's not overtly in-your-face and so allows you to step back and consider these people and events without having to judge them. All told, this is an interesting "try."
