EGON SCHIELE - DEATH AND THE MAIDEN 2016

Genre:            Drama

Director:        Dieter Berner

Screenplay:    Dieter Berner, Hilde Berger

Cast:               Noah Saavedra, Maresi Riegner, Valerie Pachner, Marie Jung

 

At the beginning of the 20th century, Egon Schiele is one of the most provocative artists in Vienna. His life and work are driven by beautiful women and an era that is coming to an end. Two women will have a lasting impact on him – his sister and first muse Gerti, and 17 year old Wally, arguably Schiele’s one true love, immortalised in his famous painting ‘Death and the Maiden’. Schiele’s radical paintings scandalise Viennese society while daring artists like Gustav Klimt and art agents alike are sensing the exceptional.

But Egon Schiele is also prepared to go beyond his own pain and to sacrifice Love and Life for his Art.

New York, 1961. World-famous philosopher Hannah Arendt is thrilled when the reputable magazine «The New Yorker’» accepts her proposal to cover the trial of Nazi mass murderer Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. With this piece of work she seeks for a last chance to confront herself with the past, having been interned in France and barely having escaped deportation to a concentration camp herself. When she publishes her articles and coins the term ‘banality of evil’, the result is a global outcry of indignation. Public opinion worldwide consider Eichmann a monster and is appalled by Arendt’s unemotional approach and interpretation of history. Her life, name and reputation are threatenend. Defending her opinions with admirable courage, she refuses to be shaken by this bitter dispute even at the expense of personal friendships. Margarethe von Trotta’s feature film is a stirring glimpse on the controversy caused by Arendt’s uncompromising political thoughts and a portrait of an exceptional woman.
