Summary: "Shooting on the actual locations where Da Vinci lived, worked, and strived for inspiration, director Renato Castellani crafts an authentic look at the artist's life, including the creation of such timeless masterpieces as Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. From his historical paintings to his innovative inventions and his bitter rivalry with fellow artist Michelangelo, Castellani's loving portrait of the artist's life combines eyewitness accounts and well-documented evidence with informed speculation to create one of the most historically accurate portrayals of Da Vinci ever to reach the screen."
