In 2013, all of Norway celebrated the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944), one of the towering figures of modern art. Munch 150 was co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. With 220 paintings on show, it brought together the greatest number of Munch’s key works in one place. Harding’s documentary allows us to view these masterworks with incredible clarity and detail, and offers expert insight and analysis.

“‘It’s just a renovation,” quips Rijksmuseum director Wim Pijbes. “How complicated can it be?” Well, that was in 2006. Seven years later, as the work finally came to completion, he had his answer. This fascinating documentary (cut down from the original 4 hour version that showed on Dutch TV and at VIFF two years ago) sheds light on one of the jewels of the art world, the home to countless masterpieces by Rembrandt and so many others.

“Hoogendijk has created an artifact that 400 years hence may prove as vital a window into Amsterdam culture as any of the Dutch masterpieces hanging in the museum itself.” Peter Debruge, Variety
