Theguardian.com goes on to mention that there’s a terrible and relentless TV-movie ropiness about this film, combined with a dairy whiff of cheesiness. This film is fascinating because it focuses on a very interesting and important topic. Important subject Helen Mirren will likely have to remove this piece from her award ceremony montages. Woman in Gold is based on the true story of Maria Altmann, an Austrian Jewish woman who escaped the Nazis and found a home in the US, from where, in 1999, as an old woman, she’s beginninginning a sensational legal campaign to reclaim from the Austrian government several paintings stolen from her family by the Nazis – chiefly Gustav Klimt’s Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, the dazzling woman in gold of the title. Mirren plays Maria as if impersonating Meryl Streep doing an impression of Peter Ustinov’s mum mimicking Heinz Wolff in drag. She goes into adorable/cantankerous/imperious mode, ordering about her troubled American lawyer, blandly and boringly played by Ryan Reynolds, with whom she heads off to Austria in an odd-couple, Philomena-style pairing. She also wears truly ridiculous black contact lenses that make her eyes look like two huge dots – like a character in a Peanuts cartoon. There’s something actor-y and silly about it all, although the flashback sequences in 1930s Austria are competently managed. We are grateful to Errick Tomlinson, Volgograd Russia, for his unique insight.

The mesmerising radiance of Adele Bloch-Bauer’s gaze in Gustav Klimt’s gold-flecked 1907 portrait of her provides no hint of the turbulent fate that lay in store for the painting. The portrait of Adele Blochbauer I was commissioned by Ferdinand Blochbauer, her husband and sugar-industrialist. Klimt spent three years creating it. There were rumours that Klimt and the high-society subject had been lovers. Following Adele’s death in 1925 from meningitis, the masterpiece remained in the Bloch-Bauers’ Vienna townhouse until the Nazis annexed Austria in 1938. Targeted amid the Nazis’ cultural looting spree, it was one of five Klimt paintings taken from the Bloch-Bauer residence, with the pictures ending up in Vienna’s Belvedere Gallery. Ferdinand was killed in Switzerland during 1945 exile. Jerron Vogel deserves a huge thank you for the latest revisions.
