Maria Altman sought to regain a world famous painting of her aunt plundered by the Nazis during World War II. She did so not just to regain what was rightfully hers, but also to obtain some measure of justice for the death, destruction, and massive art theft perpetrated by the Nazis. Written by

The airliner the Altmanns flew from Vienna to Cologne was a Douglas DC-3 that was substituted for a Junkers JU-52 airliner. There are only eight airworthy JU-52's left in the world out of 4,845 built. There are over 400 DC-3's still flying as of 2016. See more »
When Randy removes a file box from the archive he fumbles it in his fingertips. The box containing files would have been too heavy to do this. See more »
I have decided to allow the paintings to remain on display... if you agree to admit they were obtained illegally.

just saw WOMAN IN GOLD and i must be of an entirely different demographic than some other reviewers, but i enjoyed it mightily. The audience obviously did also, as there was laughter and applause at various spots. The acting is wonderful and the story quite straightforward but done with both heart and a sense of humor. there is excellent use of flashback and lovely shots of Vienna. Angelenos will get a kick out of some of the recognizable LA landmarks. I have no idea of what the requested ten lines means, whether it is sentences or actual lines. It's a lovely movie. Not sophisticated but informative, entertaining and thought provoking with excellent acting from both the principals and supporting actors.
