Spanish artist, Antonio López, tries to make a perfect painting of the quince tree in his garden, struggling to capture a perfect, fleeting moment of beauty on canvas, and the film meticulously chronicles his work. One of the best films about painting by a great film-maker. Winner of Jury Prize at 1992 Cannes Film Festival.
