DEATHLY CHESTERTON ADAPTATION
6 November 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Maybe I am spoiled by Alec Guiness as G.K Chesterton's creation Father Brown, but though Heinz Rühmann tries hard he does not make a very convincing one. Rühmann is not helped much by a so-so script that hardly captures the atmosphere, let alone the intelligent and complicated plots of the Chesterton's stories. Emphasis in this adaptation is very much on Father Brown himself rather than on a good detective story. It takes quite a while for this Father Brown to find out what solution to the murder case is; the viewer is way ahead of him.(5/10)

Helmut Ashley's direction is only adequate, as is the cast, which all amounts to a very deathly film.
