A Very Confused Biography of a Tormented Artist
19 July 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1912, in Austria, the painter Egon Schiele (Mathieu Carrière) is sent to jail accused of pornography with the nymphet Tatjana (Karina Fallenstein) in his erotic paints. His mate, the model Vally (Jane Birkin), gets help from a famous lawyer to release him. Then he leaves Vally, marries with another woman and goes to the war. This movie is a confused and non-linear biography of the unknown artist Egon Schiele. The expressionless Mathieu Carrière does not support much his character. I do not know the biography of Egon Schiele and I was not able to identify his real intentions, for example, with Tatjana, the trigger of his arresting. The beauty and the performance of Jane Birkin and the beautiful naked models are the best this movie can offer. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `Excesso e Punição' (` Excess and Punishment')
