"Based on the work of Charlotte Salomon who, as a young Jewish painter from Berlin, took refuge in Nice during World War II. 'Life or Theater' - a series of 769 poignant, unforgettable paintings - is her moving and singular masterpiece. Unique in the history of art, it has been transposed into a film by careful editing to highlight its dramatic potential. In these gouaches, she tells the story of her childhood, her love for a singing instructor, her dreams of painting, the advent of Nazism, and her exile in France"--Container.
