In your Face 8 

Documentary about Giacometti and his search for the truth. The Highlight of the first part is the point when Balthus talks about the debate between Giacometti and Breton, that is suppose to be the cause why he left the Surrealist movement. It seems that Breton said that everyone in those days knew what was a head, to what Giacometti replied “I don’t.”

No one went after the impossibility of depicting a head like him.
