Edvard Munch (1974)

April 16, 2016

This is one of the art movies that is definitely worth mentioning, not only because of the story it tells but also because of its cinematic qualities.

Written and directed by Peter Watkins, the film Edvard Munch was initially made as three-part miniseries and it follows the life story of Edvard Munch in an unusual and unconventional way. The film features cinéma vérité style interviews, along with narrated excerpts from Munch’s diary and scenes from the painter’s life reenacted by Norwegian non-professional actors.

Ingmar Bergman called the film “the work of a genius” and if that’s not a good recommendation - what is?
