    Translated from the German title as Work without Author, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck's sprawling Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film astonishes with a gripping exposition of the birth of German artist Gerhard Richter's photorealism that often obfuscates his embittered memories anguished with Nazi eugenics and totalitarian art of German Democratic Republic.

    Good if you're interested in politics, history and art. I found it compelling for all three reasons but it does have longeurs and I can understand if some folk do look away. There's quite a bit of nudity, though, which might help those with attention deficit issues ...

    The score was fantastic. Oscar worthy in my opinion...couldn't look away!

    I wanted to like the film. The subject interests me, but I found it cliche ridden and the soundtrack was over-the-top manipulative, trying to tell me what to feel at every turn. The film looked good and despite it's many flaws, it kept me watching, but I went away thinking it was an average mainstream journey with high production values. It could've been so much more.

    This movie is based on the life of Gerhard Richter, one of the 20th century's most admired visual artists, It takes place in Germany under the Nazi and then the Communist regimes. It's worth the three hour investment.
