User Reviews

 
Intense, touching
17 April 2018 | by juliazeidlerSee all my reviews

The movie "Paula" succesfully portraits the life of german artist Paula Modersohn Becker. At the same time it gives you an idea of how female artists were mistreated and mocked in the very beginning of 1900. The movie keeps up close to the reality of the artists life and can be used as a documentary.

The personality of the artist couldn't be performed better. Carla Juri perfectly plays both Paulas playful character and her headstrong side.

The movie creates a mood, which catches the viewer. It includes some very intense scenes and won't leave you untouched.
