Unlike the previous reviewer I approached this movie as a fan of the exploitation genre. Given the date of production and the extensive nudity including close-up between the legs shots this movie definitely fits. Given this, the background of a good plot with an important historical context, and we have a very nice exploitation film. Nina Finkelstein is reported to be 16, played a 15 year old, at the time of filming, and while this is common in Europe it is still unusual today to see such extensive underage nudity in a film in the USA. It makes one think how in the US we have not come very far in our acceptance of art of this nature in the past 80+ years from the time of this story. Overall I give it an 8, and I would give it more if it was faster paced or Jane Birkin was more than a 32A.

It’s actually a pretty decent film, here’s the plot summary from wikipedia which gives the flavour quite well.

The final years of the short life of Egon Schiele, the Austrian expressionist painter are chronicled against the backdrop of the final years of the Habsburg rule. The story begins around 1912 as Schiele (Mathieu Carriere) and his mistress and artistic muse Wally (Jane Birkin) are befriended by an obsessed teenage girl (Nina Fallenstein) who has run away to be with Schiele. Subsequently Schiele is imprisoned on the grounds that he has behaved in a sexually improper way towards the young woman.The young woman falsely accuses Schiele and although he denies the charge he is imprisoned. The girl withdraws her accusations but Schiele is requested to leave the area as he has offended the social mores of the conservative society in which he was living. Those offended include his mother (Angelika Hauff) who rails against his lax morals.

On his release his excesses continue although he fights (literally) to conform even volunteering to serve in the Austrian army in World War I. As a soldier Schiele cuts a pathetic figure and he is quickly removed as unsuitable. He disposes of his alcoholic mistress and has an affair with a society beauty who ultimately abandons him as she can not cope with his sexual obsessions. Schiele’s emotional cruelty is exposed as he shuns Wally as she nears death.Their parting scene at a Vienna social gathering reveals a corruption and cruelty that is at the heart of Schiele’s artistic soul.

Schiele’s paintings however develop greater depths as he pushes his body and emotions to their limit. Whilst his paintings are gaining acceptance (and many now hang in the Leopold Museum in Vienna) his own sanity suffers. He marries and appears to find a modicum of contentment until his wife Edith (Christine Kaufman) dies in the 1918 Spanish Influenza pandemic. Schiele makes love to his dying wife in a scene that is tender yet shocking, evoking a central theme of Schiele’s work: a link between sex and death. Shortly thereafter Schiele himself contracts influenza and dies.

The locations for the film were Vienna and in the Croatian capital Zagreb.
