Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
The interactions of three exiles in Berlin in the 1890s are the object of this film's inquiry. United by their admiration for an uncommonly lovely Norwegian woman named Dagny (Lise Fjeldstad), the group included the Polish writer Stanislaw Przybyszewski (Daniel Olbrychski), the troubled Norwegian painter, Edvard Munch (Nils Ole Oftebro), and the Swedish playwright August Strindberg (Per Oscarsson). The beauty marries the writer Przybyszewski, who travels all over northern Europe with her and then leaves her.
