Very noble
4 December 2000 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

A really entertaining comedy! I don't know the original novel by Thomas Mann but the film doubtless did justice to Mann's language. It's a pleasure to hear Horst Buchholz in the role of Felix Krull leading everybody up the garden path with hilarious wordiness! I enjoyed every minute of this movie. It's true that it's old-fashioned but that's what makes up its attraction.
