Stunning images. Well narrated. Interesting insights into the works of art and Munch's life. The introductory film/music was an unexpected bonus. For anyone interested in art and art history.

This was an excellent opportunity to see a paintings exhibition that would be difficult to see in person (in Oslo) and hear the curators speak about their aims for the show and the decisions they made. Quite a few curators and art critics were interviewed. We learned about Munch's biography, saw an actor re-enact the artist visually, seated by the fjords and writing in his diary. Two female actors played his love interests who had impact on his works. One restorer was interviewed who talked only a bit about the techniques used by the artist (that could have been longer).
The opportunity to see so many of Munch's works and especially the very large ones that do not travel was much appreciated.

This is a great art documentary! The person playing Munch did such a good job. It was a good balance of his life story and his art. The art expert's commentary was insightful. I love this series on art. It is so hard in our sports and entertainment driven world to find places one can be exposed and learn about the different arts. Thank you for bringing this series to us. Munch 150 was fantastic!!!!
