SynopsisUntil her early death at the age of 31 in 1907, Paula Modersohn-Becker had two great loves: the art and the city of Paris. With great pleasure and determination, she explored both.
Between 1900 and 1906, she visited Paris four times, spending a total of two years in the French capital. Like a sponge, the young German sucks up the Belle Epoque. She discovers Cézanne, meets Rodin, attends courses in private academies, draws daily in the Louvre. With excerpts from Paula Modersohn-Beckers' graphic and humorous letters, we expolore a unique city in dialogue with a young woman. A film about love for Paris and about the courage and self-esteem of a young artist who continues to develop herself and her work and thus became a pioneer of modernity.
