Summary, etc.:
Focusing initially on Munch's formative years in late 19th Century Oslo, the young artist's work is viciously attacked by the critics and public alike. He is forced to leave his home country for Berlin, where, along with the notorious Swedish playwright August Strindberg, he becomes part of the cultural storm that is to sweep Europe. A multi-faceted masterpiece that is more than just a bio-pic of the iconic Norwegian Expressionist painter.
