| Fascinating story brought down a little by some cliches
Thiis film is about an elderly Jewish woman, living in LA, who fled the Nazis Following the death of her sister, she attempts to reclaim the magnificent Klimt paintings, including the painting in the title, looted by the Nazis from her family home in Vienna and now in one of Vienna's great museums.

The film is about the woman's coming to terms with her past and the attempt to see justice done; and also about her young lawyer's growing awareness about his past. He is the grandson of the Austrian-Jewish composer Arnold Schoenberg, who also fled the Nazis.

I liked the film, which received mixed reviews. There are a few annoying cliches, particularly in the relationship between the young lawyer and his wife. Some reviewers said the film was a dull movie about a fascinating true story, but I didn't find it dull at all. Helen Mirren was excellent as the lead, Maria Altmann, who died in Los Angeles in 2011 at the age of 94.

The title painting now hangs in the Neue Galerie in New York City.
