Description: The film, by the way, very good, I would say a solid, is not without some drawbacks in the form of a bore sometimes.
Of the Austrian artist Egon Schiele, I have little to no idea and would not know and further, if a French singer Mylene Farmer, which I really like, not dedicated to him one of his famous song Je te rends ton amour, I will not say that his Creativity is strongly attracted my attention, but the fact that he has devoted Mylene song and this one of her favorite artists, was the occasion for a movie.
But not only is involved in the film, the actress Jane Birkin beauty was even more reason for the review, and in general I like movies about artists, creative people, their personal relationships.
I liked the movie from the beginning to the shocking number of ordinary people, it begins with the fact that the house of the artist (Mathieu Quarrym who played in Naked Massacre), where he lives with his companion, Wally (Jane Birkin) (but not his wife), that the young teenage girl she’s only 13 or 14 years, it is already late in the evening or at night, the window is a heavy downpour, the girl was soaked to the skin, she ran away from her parents and asks to sleep one night, and the next morning to go to Vienna to his grandmother. Thus begins the disaster of the artist – he is accused of molesting and abusing young girls and pornography, crammed into prison, and above it is the court, but in the end it comes out. This is only the beginning of the film.
