Worthy Norwegian Drama
11 September 2002 | by (miami, FL) – See all my reviews

The Prompter is an engaging, well paced but flawed Norwegian drama. The nuanced performance by Hege Schoyen has been recognized with awards at film festivals in Europe and America.The milieu of the opera is appropriately recreated and incorporated into the plot. Verdi's music is always a refined pleasure. What keeps this film from achieving greatness is a major flaw in the script.

Siv's fiancee is too insensitive and unsympathetic to make her decision to leave him a difficult one. There is no ambiguity and little tension. Writer/director Hilde Heier makes it too easy for the audience to root for the tuba player. Still, there are plenty of reasons to recommend The Prompter to opera buffs and those looking for good romantic drama. 7/10
