(BR 2000)

A film about the life of Peter Paul Rubens. Rubens is credited with more than 2000 paintings and thousands of drawings. An unimaginably great life’s work. In this abundance everything seems contradictory: the pious and greatest religious artist of the epoch, the voluptuous painter of archaic instincts, the bourgeoisie and art entrepreneur. A powerful, wild and affective genius. The bubbling creative, open to the deepest passions. Stephan Bleek’s film tells the story of Rubens’ life. Filmed at original locations.
