Storyline

Lamenting Thebian women are waiting for the men to come back from war. God Jupiter is attracted to one of them: Alkmene. He goes to earth and tries to seduce her as himself: an old man. Failing in this, he disguises himself as Amphitryon (Alkemene's husband) and tries again. Next morning Amphitryon and his men come back from war; he suspects adultery and wants a divorce. Jupiter's wive Juno now also comes to earth and clears things up. Written by jan onderwater <jan.onderwater@wxs.nl>

Strength Through Joy?
11 November 1998 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Perhaps musicals were part of Dr. Goebbels' propaganda plan, and perhaps the Olympian gods and goddesses did not look like Aryan übermenschen, but here we do have an entertaining, high-gloss, musical comedy about the ancient Greeks and there are few enough films about them as it is. (Even if the Nazis were attempting to buy legitimacy by co-opting the wellspring of Western civilization.)

When I saw this film a couple of years ago, I actually thought I heard a couple of topical jokes slyly directed at the Nazis and assumed I was seeing the last gasp of some still independent liberal Weimar tradition. Maybe I was mistaken, and such a thing was no longer possible two years into the thousand-year Reich.
