From the visionary directors behind “Häxan” and “The Phantom Carriage” comes “Mikaël,” a groundbreaking LGBT film that intricately weaves the tale of a renowned painter, his adored young male muse, and a scheming princess, exploring the complexities of love, jealousy, and deception. Against the backdrop of artistic genius, the film delves into the emotional turmoil as the painter’s possessiveness drives a wedge between him and his muse, leading to betrayal and ultimately a poignant reflection on true love. With its nuanced portrayal of same-sex desire and its exploration of the human psyche, “Mikaël” stands as a significant work in both cinematic and LGBT history.
