Jag skall bli Sveriges Rembrandt eller do! / I Want to be Sweden's Rembrandt or Die! (1990) DVD9
Recreates scenes from the life of Swedish painter Ernst Josephson (1851-1906), who declared at the age of twenty, "I shall become Sweden's Rembrandt or die."

When Ernst Josephson uttered those fateful words early in his artistic career, he may have foreseen his significant place in the history of Swedish art. But Josephson was an artist who would come to experience a spiritual roller-coaster, with moments of the most amazing creativity, as well as melancholy and despair.

Voice-over narration from his letters recounts his difficult career, thwarted love life, the critical rejection of his most famous painting "The River God", and his descent into syphilis-induced insanity. Examines many paintings in detail, accompanied by Josephson's musical compositions.
