MY REMBRANDT, 2019
The Netherlands | HDD, Color, 97’ | Dutch, English, French
Director: Oeke Hoogendijk
The documentary follows collectors who own paintings by the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt, who lived between 1606 and 1669 as well as Rembrandt experts. Portraits by Rembrandt have a distinct realism, a power that creates an impression as if the figure could move out of the painting any second. My Rembrandt is a very well constructed documentary that traces the passionate people who spend their lives with these portraits as well as the transnational race to buy a pair of Rembrandt paintings between the Louvre in Paris and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. The documentary immerses the viewer in this unique obsession with Rembrandt that defies description, while revealing the actors and dramas of the art world.
