Storyline

At the battle of Solferino Joseph von Trotta, a lieutenant in the Slovenian infantry, is wounded while saving the life of the young Austrian Emperor Franz-Joseph I. The Emperor rewards him by elevating him in society to a position quite out of keeping with his social rank, and which entirely alienates him from his farming background: Joseph gets promoted to the rank of captain, and is made a member of the nobility. Years later Joseph von Trotta accidentally finds a description of the battle that changed his life in a text-book belonging to his son Franz. Enraged at the over-emotional, patriotic and sentimental way in which the Emperor's rescue at the hands of "the Hero of Solferino" is depicted, he lodges a complaint at the Imperial Court. During an audience, the Emperor, displaying a certain degree of resignation, attempts to convince him that myths are both justifiable and necessary. Joseph, however, discovers "that it was nothing else but craftiness that assured the existence of ... Written by Anonymous

Wonderful
23 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Radetsky March is really a sad story and yet fabulous film. I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful recreation of the pre-1918 Austro-Hungarian Empire. The acting is also superb. Much of this film is filmed in real settings such as the Hapsburg summer palace of Schoenbrunn. Tilman Gunther is simply superb in the role of Carl Joseph von Trotta und Cipolje. He is a very talented actor and shows what a versatile performer he is when having to age over a long period of time. In the role of his father is the great actor Max von Sydow. He is very much the martinet and is ideally cast as the peace loving provincial representative of the Emperor. Charlotte Rampling is also wonderful as Valerie von Taussig. She has such an incredible presence on screen and looks superb in the period costume. The actor Friedrich W. Bauschulte who portrays Kaiser Franz Josef has definitely done his research as he looks every inch the old Emperor. If you like period drama then this is not to be missed.
