Event Details

A film by Dieter Berner.
Young, brilliant and seductive, Egon Schiele is one of the most provocative and scandalous artists in early twentieth century Vienna.  His life and work are stimulated by eroticism and a Bohemian era which is coming to a close.  Two beautiful women drive his inspiration - his sister, Gerti, and Wally Neuzil, the sensual model he immortalizes in his most famous painting "Death and the Maiden."  The outbreak of WWI threatens Schiele's artistic pursuits. 

Not rated, but would be an R if it was.

In German with English subtitles, 1 hour, 50 minutes.

"A fascinating biographical story [with] refreshing young newcomers." ~Pat Nevers, KinoCritics
