They may seem a tad quaint and old-fashioned in this age of hyper-sexualized imagery dominating almost every form of media, but the artists and their hangers-on of 1920s Paris were groundbreaking lays for their time. The Moderns (1988) is set in that distant past between the two World Wars. The licentious freedom of Paris had created a magnet for leading-edge painters and writers from the world wide, particularly expatriates from the UK and US. Into this heady time of unbridled social and creative possibility, insert a master forger who duplicates three priceless masterpieces by Matisse, Modigliani and Cezanne. You now have the basis of a story. Add in the sultry sensuality of tall, dark and devastating Linda Fiorentino, and the plot has passion to propel it.
