Synopsis

A biography centering around the Norwegian Expressionist painter Edvard Munch and covering about thirty years in his life. The film focuses on the influences that shaped his art, particularly the prevalence of disease and death in his family and his youthful affair with a married woman.

Our take

Peter Watkins, best known for his brilliant “documentary” The War Game, is one of the very best and yet mostly unheralded of filmmakers. His majestic biopic of the painter of “The Scream” envelops reality and drama with a breathtaking depth of historical research. Presented in its uncut version!
