WOMAN IN GOLD
This is a realistic British-American
The British-American drama film directed by Simon Curtis and written by the famed Alexi Kaye Campbell. The well-known stars are Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmen, Tatiana Maslany, Max Irons, Charles Dance, Elizabeth McGovern, and Johnathan Pryce.
The movie is based a true story of late Marie Altmann. She was an elderly Jewish refugee living in Los Angeles. Altman got together with her young Lawyer (Randy Schoenberg) - fought the Government of Austria for at least a decade to reclaim Gustav Klimt's iconic painting of her aunt. The Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I. The Nazi's confiscated all of the portraits in Vienna just prior to World War II. Altman took her legal battle to the Supreme Court of the United States. It ended up in favor in the 'Republic of Austria v. Altmann (2004.
There are many flashbacks throughout the film. Altmann recalls the arrival of Nazi forces in Vienna, Austria, and much suppression of the Jewish community. The Nazi's looted and pillaged against the Jewish families. They all tried to escape, before the country was completely torn apart. And - the reason the Jews wanted to flee from Germany. I don't wonder - I would do the same. However they didn't stay in their gorgeous homes they fled to Austria. Altmann moved the painting to the United States
Altmann and members of her family were lucky to flee to the United States. Many were successful in their escape. Altmann enlists the help of Randol Schoenberg, a young Lawyer with little experience. However, he was smart enough to make a claim for the art restitution board in Austria.
And Altmann has the painting moved to the to the USA on displayed at an early New York gallery. It was moved to a permanent exhibit.
The acting is Supreme. At times there were many tears coming on my eyes. There is gorgeous flashbacks of the paintings and the fabulous homes that you all had to leave from Germany. The pictures on the walls in Germany. This movie certainly brings out a true story and grand historical elements for Art, Identity, Justice and International Law. Everyone in the this chapter brought out the long-term effects - it's a joy to see for yourself.

STRONG AND IRRESISTIBLE
Maria Altman sought to regain a world famous painting of her Aunt that was plundered by the World War II. Maria managed to get some of the Gorgeous Arts off the wall. Oh by the way - don't get confused with Austria and Australia. The fight never ends. Some thematic elements are brief, but very strong language.
