Storyline

Inside the Mind of Leonardo is based on the artist's private journals dating from the Italian Renaissance. With more than 6,000 pages of handwritten notes and drawings, Da Vinci's private journals are the most comprehensive documents that chronicle the work of the world's most renowned inventor, philosopher, painter and genius. Never before has access been granted to capture these works in 3D HD format. Using this precious collection of writings and drawings to recount Da Vinci's story in his own words, the film re-creates the mindscape and ideas of mankind's greatest polymath. In a powerful and haunting performance, actor Peter Capaldi portrays Leonardo, dramatically narrating passages and monologues from his journals. Capaldi captures the passion of Leonardo's genius, his understanding of the workings of the natural world, his insights on art and life and his inner fears and torments. Written by Production

Erm, Scottish?
13 January 2019 | by EngAngloSee all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I like Peter Capaldi - he is brilliant as Malcolm Tucker. But what was the thinking here???

-Right, we've unearthed a load of Leonardo Da Vinci's notes and need someone to play him. -Ok cool, how about an Italian actor. -Wellllll, yeah, that's one possibility. -Or at least someone who can pass off a decent Italian accent. -We could, we could. -Erm, did you have someone in mind? -How about Peter Capaldi! -Peter Capaldi, the well-known Scottish actor. -Yep! -Does he do a good Italian accent? -Not that I know of... -So you're suggesting... A Scottish Leonardo. -You got it!

Yep, a Scottish Leonardo. Leonardo Da Vinci's words, read, in a Scottish accent. Sorry, but didn't work for me at all.
