Ingmar Bergman described this film as 'a work of genius'. This biopic of the great Norwegian Expressionist painter and printmaker, Edvard Munch, played by Geir Westby, closely examines the artistic process.

Writer and director Peter Watkins vividly portrays the emotional, social and political dramas which exerted such an influence on Munch's art and state of mind.

Originally made for television, this extended 221-minute high-definition version includes an interval and refreshments.

Age: 18+
