Exhibition On Screen: KLIMT & Schiele: Eros & Psyche

“At the beginning of 1900, Vienna became the unwitting European capital of thought and the arts, in an era destined to end with the First World War and the fall of the Hapsburg Empire. Its elegant streets graced the presence of Arthur Schnitzler, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, the young Ludwig Wittgenstein, and future directors Fritz Lang and Erich von Stroheim, while Alma Mahler used to invite musicians and intellectuals to her prestigious living room. The first of her many lovers was in fact Gustav Klimt, the star of the Vienna Secession art movement and the protagonist of the documentary by Michele Mally, Klimt & Schiele. Eros and Psyche which successfully focuses on the stories of this great painter and his pupil Egon Schiele.

“With elegant direction and clear photography by the young Mateusz Stolecki, which only serves to enhances the film’s shapes and colours, the film takes viewers on a journey inside the innovative and often ‘scandalous’ works of art by the two great artists, as well as through history itself, accompanied by the voice of the actor Lorenzo Richelmy.” - Cineuropa
