At the beginning of the 20th Century, Egon Schiele (Saavedra) emerges as one of the most provocative artists in Vienna. His life and work are driven by beautiful young 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 (Riegner), and 17 year old Wally (Pachner), arguably Schiele’s one true love, immortalized in his now famous painting “Death and the Maiden”.
With a narrative centered in Vienna near the end of the First World War, shortly before Schiele’s death, Berner 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 daring artists like Gustav Klimt and art agents alike, scandalized Viennese society. Cinematographer Carsten Thiele flawlessly captures the decadence and vibrancy of turn of the Century Vienna, highlighting the award-winning performances by Saavedra and Pachner that drive this opulent historical drama.
