I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to learn so much more abut this great artist.
Without traveling to Norway, the film allows the viewer to feel as if you are there in the two museums seeing the exhibition on the 150th anniversary of his birth. I felt as if I was there in the museum getting an up close and personal view of many of his paintings, with the added benefit of narrative and background on the story behind the painting.
This was a very worthwhile film, and I highly recommend it. Kudos to the filmakers.

I was never a huge fun of Munch, but all I knew was The Scream. There is so much more to this artist! They captured the man, his work and this exhibition in Oslo beautifully! LOVED it!

An outstanding presentation of an artist I knew very little about. I am very much looking forward to the Vermeer in October and hope many more such presentations will be forthcoming.
I thank fathomevents for making these presentation and the HD Metropolitan Opera broadcasts available to such a wide audience.

My only criticism was that the actor who portrayed Munch
throughout his adult life needed to visibly age in the
