Henrik M. Dahlsbakken's Munch brings to the big screen the life story of one of the world's most significant modern painters, Edvard Munch. Misunderstood by his peers, rejected by the art establishment, wracked with grief over the loss of his younger sister and tortured by addiction, the film portrays Munch's life, painting an intimate and nuanced picture of the artist and his work across four chapters. Munch is played by four actors, Alfred Ekker Strande ("Ida Takes Charge"), Mattis Herman Nyquist ("Headhunters"), Ola G. Furuseth ("Made in Oslo") and Anne Krigsvoll ("Lilyhammer"). They play Munch aged 21, 30, 45, and 80 respectively. Four writers each took on a chapter to accentuate the changing periods in Munch's life. Three of the chapters are set in Norway, and the remaining chapter takes place in modern-day Berlin, bringing a contemporary edge to the story of an artist who remains relevant and revered worldwide.

Rated: 8/10 Aug 22, 2023 Full Review Carlos Esquives Cinencuentro This biography requires empathy towards its subject, his dramas, behaviors, and shortcomings. Thus, through this panorama, we're introduced to Munch's art, albeit always from a theoretical perspective...
