magnetic love, never seen such a pair of lovers before
9 February 1999 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is a biography of Hoelderlin's life somehow, but the main focus lies on the desperate love between the poet himself and his employer's wife Susette. (For details about Hoelderlin's poetry and life check your local library, it is worth it!) The movie presents an impressively vivid and - despite the historic setting and costumes - a quite contemporary view at Hoelderlin's life. It would be too much to go into detail, but this is for sure:

I have never seen such a magnetic, passionate, fine and erotic pair of lovers in a movie before! If you like beauties, that are absolutely non-boring, non-hollywoodish, refreshing, hell of actors and truly convincing representatives of their narrative roles, then off you go to see this well-balanced and wonderful movie. Nina Grosse directed this film with excellent taste, modesty and charme. One of my favourites in 1999.
