This movie, set in the 19th and 20th Century, follows the life of the german artist Paula Modersohn-Becker. It especially focuses on her most productive years in Worpswede (Germany) and Paris (France). One central topic is the discrimination of women in the world of art, while the story also follows Moderson-Beckers relationships with other artists and poets of her time, friends and family.
Scriptwriters Stefan Kolditz and Stephan Suschke already worked on a biopic about Paula Modersohn-Becker for the DEFA-Studios in the GDR. When Producer Ingelore König found out about their work while searching writers for a Modersohn-Becker biopic about 25 years later, she felt like "winning the lottery jackpot". She hired Kolditz and Suschke, who followed a new approach to Modersohn-Becker's life for the script. See more »
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.
