The Portrait of Donna T. / Le Portrait de Madame T. / Das Portrait der Donna T./ Portretul Doamnei T.


Author: Ana-Maria Bamberger



Asked by a mysterious admirer to make a portrait of famous older actress Donna T., David is reluctantly allowed to take a seat next to her and the dialogue to begin. Moments of her life and of his, both sad and funny, moments of remembrance, of loss, of understanding and tenderness arise to reveal two existences intersecting each other in the same orbit.

Synopsis (français): Approché par un mystérieux admirateur pour faire le portrait de la célèbre actrice Madame T, le peintre Marius David parvient, après maintes réticences de celle-ci, à la convaincre d’accepter - et un dialogue surprenant s’initie. 

Synopsis (deutsch): Donna T. probt für sich allein eine Rolle, bei sich zu Hause, umgeben von zahlreichen Insignien einer glänzenden Karriere als der Maler Marius David im Auftrag eines unbekannten Bewunderers vor ihrer Tür steht um ihr Portrait zu malen.
