A young man gains social and amorous advantages through deception and his good looks
15 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a masterful Bavarian TV production of "The Confessions of Felix Krull" by Thomas Mann. Bernhard Sinkel directs the action with complete attention to detail and a visual feast illustrating the elegance of the Belle Époque. The lush settings of the countryside, together with the extravagance of high society living in the towns are beautifully conveyed in this story of opportunism. John Moulder-Brown as Felix Krull is perfect for the role and gives a tour-de-force performance. His looks, his deportment and his smart clothes all add to the appearance of an increasingly confident young man who engages fully in society, taking all the advantages offered to him. With his boyish good looks and slim figure, he makes full use of these attributes to achieve several amorous adventures. But his goal is as a gentleman with in high society and he is unwilling to have long-term attachments, nevertheless enjoying them while they last. While he tricks his way along, it is more the case of pandering to those who see him in their own particular way than any true deviousness on his part. Ultimately he meets a family where his sensibilities to the mother and daughter, change his nature to a more understanding and compassionate level. Although I have only seen this production in German and yet do not understand the language, the quality of everything throughout overrides any barriers that this may cause. There is humour, passion and elegance throughout and you are left with the satisfied feeling of having had the opportunity of watching drama at its best.
