Film Review: ‘Woman in Gold’

Published Saturday February 11

This heavy-handed retelling of the fight to reclaim a Gustav Klimt painting stolen by Nazis is no masterpiece.

Gustav Klimt may have been illustrious for his gilded portraits of adorable Austrian ladies, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the same approach suits “ Woman in Gold

This is manufactured sentiment, less interested in provoking thought than in manipulating emotion, constructed of human obstacles overcome, stirring speeches delivered and heart-rending flashbacks unveiled, all suspended like so much Spam in the jelly of its own score — so much heavy-handed strings-and-pianos business from Martin Phipps and Hans Zimmer, plastered on more liberally than the gold leaf applied by Klimt himself.

Article length: About 1220 words.
