Fernando Trueba’s new black-and-white drama, now out in cinemas, is The Artist and the Model, an affectionate study of a crotchety sculptor (Jean Rochefort) who hopes to complete one last work worthy of his reputation.

It’s a sparkling gem of a film, but big-screen relationships between artists and their muses aren’t always so heart-warming.
