A film that brings to life the legendary artist Edward Munch
What is art? And who is an artist ? are two important questions that the film addresses beautifully, being simple at the same time complex.
The film's treatment has a personal touch and the subject is investigated with loving care and concern, slowly unfolding the work and life of Edward Munch.The human story of the artist and its interplay with his work is integral to the film and helps us discover the human being Edward Munch and his great art showcased with the tools of a filmmaker making the experience a dance of give and take between the artist Edward Munch and the audience and at another level between the filmmaker and the audience.
The film is soulful and at the same time relevant and contemporary, asking important questions and leaving us to pause and reflect on the past, present and future of art itself.
