Woman in Gold

Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee, takes on the Austrian government to recover a world famous painting of her aunt plundered by the Nazis during World War II, she believes rightfully belongs to her family. She did so not just to regain what was rightfully hers, but also to obtain some measure of justice for the death, destruction, and massive art theft perpetrated by the Nazis.

Movie Reviews:

  • Reno: > The fight for the Mona Lisa of Austria.

    Based on the true story of an elderly woman, Maria Atman, who attempt to reclaim her aunt’s portrait from the museum of her birthplace. Now she’s an old and American citizen, but after her sister’s death the possibilities favours her when she meets a young lawyer. So these two sets a journey on one focus, that is to reunite with the family’s art. How? That’s the story of this beautiful movie to tell.

    Well, the story was a very good one as inspired by the real, but looks a so simple drama as a film, even the twist and turns. Only if it would have been a better narration, at least in a few important portions, the awards would have been poured on it rather just praises. Anyhow Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds combo were excellent, but individually she ruled and he was a low key performance. Though the overall movie wins with the inspiring characters than the narration.

    The two different timeline stories edited into one random presentation. One is the past events and the other is the present that reveals simultaneously Maria’s struggles. Really, it was better than I thought, one of the best drama with the backdrop of the world war 2. Everyone can’t enjoy this flick, but certainly I feel I want to recommend it all.

    7/10
