Thirteen of Edward Hopper’s paintings are brought to vivid life by the film, which tells the story of a woman whose reflective and contemplative inner monologues offer insight on US history from the beginning of the 1930s through to the mid-1960s. According to director Gustav Deutsch, the film is about the staging of reality and the dialogue between painting and film. “An impressive cinematic recreation of images and moods.” (Hollywood Reporter) In English.
