1976 - VHS & DVD
A dramatized biography of Norwegian painter Edvard Munch, done in a highly
documentary style. The film examines Munch's changing artistic styles, and the
psychological problems that plagued him throughout his life. His raw, modern work
"The Scream" shocked the bourgeois world. It is a wonderful film in its depiction of the
artistic process. "Edvard Munch" is part of New Yorker Video's "International Cinema" series.
