Film description

In 1642 Rembrandt Van Rijn painted his 'cursed' work The Night Watch which would spoil his career at the peak of his fame. With The Night Watch Rembrandt, the most famous Dutch painter of the 17th century not only introduced revolutionary concepts to the previously conventional collective portraits, but he also cleverly exposed the intrigue and dirty plans of his respectable subjects. The painter's insolence would be punished and in a few years he would become a pauper with nowhere to live. The historical intrigue is presented here as an avant-garde performance played in an empty theatre hall where only decorations and lights change, new props appear and the central position is occupied by the painter, shown as a man entirely modern, a democrat, maybe even an anarchist, maybe a sort of post-modernist.
