Edvard Munch Film Poster


Peter Watkins directs this made-for-TV biographical drama centred on the Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch (Geir Westby). Making use of Munch's personal diaries, the film explores his private life as well as the emotional, political and social events that influenced his work during the late 19th century. Featuring re-enacted scenes alongside staged interviews, where characters share their opinions of him, the film dramatises Munch's artistic process and key events from his life that affected it including his affair with Mrs. Fru Heiberg (Gro Fraas).
