“There is something curious about Rembrandt; it is as if there was such extraordinary truthfulness, sentimentality and empathy in his work that whoever looks at his painting goes in search of himself,” said the director. What made Rembrandt so special even to the citizens of 17th-century Amsterdam, who lined up to portray him: Rembrandt looked beneath the surface and showed who he really was. He did not flatter his patrons, despite keeping an eye on the vanity and sophistication of the social environment he portrayed. And he ruthlessly applied this method to himself. His self-portraits, especially the latter, are incredibly honest explorations of the psychological toll we pay over the course of our lives. In his latest paintings, Rembrandt is resigned. His way of painting makes us understand that life is not perfect and everyone has their flaws and that is what makes us human. In this way, since the 17th century, Rembrandt has erected a mirror for our contemporaries, a mirror that teases and tickles”. “My goal was create a Shakespeare play, showing the main characters with every possible human element (…). I am so grateful for the conviction and candor of our protagonists, who, no matter how different their worlds, share an important detail that keeps them all: Rembrandt fever.
