Norwegian filmmaker Henrik Martin Dahlsbakken paints a non-conformist portrait of Edvard Munch (1863-1944), one of the most important artists of his time. In the unlikely event that you don't know Munch's name, you certainly know his most famous work; The Scream. This motif, which he repeated in various techniques, nestled in the subconscious of the 20th-century world. It is an image of fear and loneliness that one can identify with. Could that also be characteristic of the Norwegian artist's life?

Munch seemed to be something different for everyone: a skandalon, freethinker, sexual adventurer, rather boring, genius, you name it. For this reason, Dahlsbakken has Munch played by different actors and places the character in different times. This makes Munch a kaleidoscope rather than a typical artist biopic - an essay on what one man's life and art meant for his own time, but also for the future.
