Woman in Gold.. . . the film

Woman in Gold by Gustav Klimt

This film is a glimpse into the Nazis of  the third Reich  plundering art work throughout Europe. Helen Mirren, tells  the true  story of one Jewish women’s battle to recover her family’s stolen art, six decades after the German soldiers plundered her family’s gorgeous Viennese apartment.  This Klimt painting was of Mirren’s aunt and had hung in the family’s living room.

Ryan Reynolds plays a young attorney who agrees to help  her.  He is able to hold  his own against Mirren’s magnificent acting.

The film has lovely glimpses of Vienna, one of the most monumental and elegant cities in Europe.  Another very popular painting by Gustave Klimt is “The Kiss.”
