Huh??
27 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well I didn't get it. nope, nada, nothing. I had to sit thru the dubbed German to English version "Group Portrait With A Lady". Overall sound quality was horrible but even ignoring that it just made no sense?! It begins at what looks like the 1970's but then blink your back in 1940's Nazi Germany then blink your back in the 70's (due to the lead character Lenni's normal hair in one scene and gray in the next?) I think it flashed back and forth the entire film. I was so confused i didn't know what the hell was happening. Big ole'waste of my time. Romy Schnieder was pretty though. I never heard of her so I looked her up - wow she was in a lot of films even Rowen and Martin's Laugh-in. Wonder what she did on that?. Maybe it makes better sense in German? 2 out of 10
