Storyline

Egon Schiele is one of the most provocative artists in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th Century. His life and work are driven by beautiful women and an era that is coming to an end. Two women will have a lasting impact on him - his sister and first muse Gerti, and 17 year old Wally, arguably his one true love, immortalized in his famous painting 'Death and the Maiden'. His radical paintings scandalize Viennese society while daring artists like Gustav Klimt and art agents alike are sensing the exceptional. But he is also prepared to go beyond his own pain and to sacrifice Love and Life for his art that inspires us up to this day. Written by lament

a sketch
2 February 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Precise, powerful, delicate. Egon Schiele and the women of his life. Admirable performance of Noah Saavedra, flavors of Austria of Belle Epoque, wise use of biographic details. Could it be better ? Off course ! But, in the case of Schiele, it is difficult or too subjective to define this better. The film has the precious gift to be a correct one. A good invitation to discover the fascinating universe of the art of Egon Schiele. A sketch, maybe, but, obvious, an inspired one, reflecting care and science and admiration for the great artist. Not a story about a genius but portrait of an exceptional young man and his reflections of emotions in a special, profound special art. So, a beautiful sketch.
