Edvard Munch

Edvard Munch (1974, imdb)
Directed by Peter Watkins
Written by Peter Watkins

This movie was produced by Norwegian state television and carried out through the vision of British filmmaker Peter Watkins. It clocks in at 3.30 hrs and is by no means “casual television”, whatever that might be, but is thankfully a completely wonderful depiction of the great Expressionistic artist during the years 1884 to 1894.

Many different nationalities are represented in the movie and in a rare feat of accuracy the Norwegians speak Norwegian and the Germans speak German and so on.
