UNINSPIRED ADAPTATION
4 March 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Faithful, may be too faithful, uninspired and spineless adaptation of Kãstner's novel. The cast was probably instructed to speak their lines as if they were reading the novel aloud: all the characters remain wooden puppets.

Neither 1931-Berlin nor a 1930's atmosphere comes across. Good sets and clothing alone is not enough.

The composer should have gone the same way as Fabian.
