EGON SCHIELE – DEATH AND THE MAIDEN
EGON SCHIELE – TOD UND MÄDCHEN
2016, 109 min, Austria/Luxembourg, Dir: Dieter Berner

Egon Schiele (Noah Saavedra) was one of the most provocative artists in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century, his life and work driven by beautiful young women as an era was coming to an end. Two women in particular had a lasting impact on him – his sister and first muse Gerti (Maresi Riegner) and 17-year-old Wally (Austrian Film Award winner Valerie Pachner), arguably Schiele’s one true love, immortalized in his now-famous painting “Death and the Maiden.” This opulent historical drama employs a series of flashbacks to focus on key periods and figures in Schiele’s life, as well as the radical paintings that, despite being recognized as exceptional by both daring artists such as Gustav Klimt and art dealers, scandalized Viennese society. Cinematographer Carsten Thiele flawlessly captures the decadence and vibrancy of turn-of-the-century Vienna.
