Love and Passion

Hi Folks, as you know ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ not only was an important film, also was a real story during the ‘great depression’ of the thirties between:

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

The famous Theadora Van Runkle designed the costumes for this movie.

Here we’ve got some great sketches for our delight.

Special Movie. Gerda Wegener, the Danish Artist and the Erotism (1886-1940)

patriciaThanks so much!   ¡Un millón de gracias, Patricia!

Dear friends and followers, I publish this unexpected post because Patricia Alvárez one member of this community has given us, a great contribution with the tip that she suggested. This is the movie:

puzzle

The story:

In mid-1920s Copenhagen, portrait artist Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander) asks her husband, popular landscape artist Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne), to stand in for a female model who is late to come to their flat to pose for a painting she’s working on.
The act of posing as a female figure unmasks Einar’s lifelong identification as a woman, whom she has named Lili Elbe. This sets off a progression, first tentative and then irreversible, of leaving behind the identity as Einar, which she has struggled to maintain all her life.
This takes place as both Lili and Gerda relocate to Paris; Gerda’s portraits of Lili in her feminine state attract serious attention from art dealers in a way that her previous portraiture had not. It is there that Gerda tracks down art dealer Hans Axgil (Matthias Schoenaerts), a childhood friend of Lili (Hans had been the first boy who had ever kissed her as Lili).
Hans and Gerda’s mutual attraction is a challenge, as Gerda is navigating her changing relationship to Lili; but Hans’ long-time friendship with and affection for Lili cause him to be supportive of both Lili and Gerda.
