Storyline

Bohemia in the 19th century, stage-coach driver Hans, loves the mayor's daughter Marie, but she is promised Wenzel, the son of another wealthy farmer. Marie refuses to marry Wenzel because of Hans, but the marriage arranger tries to "buy" Marie from Hans. But when Wenzel tells Hans, that he doesn't want to marry Marie, either, because he loves circus director Brummel's daughter, Hans decides to accept the offer of money for not interferring in the relations of Hans and Marie. But when Marie hears about this, she doesn't want to see Hans again. Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

Fun at the opera
28 April 2009 | by (Konstanz, Germany) – See all my reviews

I am the first to comment here, and I'll gladly do. Although the one and only external review at http://www.cinepassion.org/Reviews/b/BarteredBride.html already gives a good idea.

In a nutshell: Marie, daughter of the mayor, is to be engaged with Wenzel, son of a rich farmer. But they don't agree and find other interests: Marie, the postmaster (coach driver) Hans; Wenzel, the circus gypsy girl Esmeralda. Complications ensue, of course...

This is said to be the first opera movie ever. With many speaking scenes, I'm not sure - while Smetana's original was a comic opera, this film thankfully embeds slightly more realism (or not, in the Valentin/Karlstadt appearances: "How many staff?" - "Seven, almost eight." - "So let's write eight." - "Oh no, eight is too much, it's rather five.") The outdoor scenes (most are), especially with the postal coach, are really thrilling. Or the bear chase. All in all, it's just a rom-com, but (to me at least) very enjoyable.
