Hörbiger Goes Hollywood
18 March 2001 | by (Vienna) – See all my reviews

I watched it at the movies and enjoyed it very much. Austrian film directors learned how to use striking sound effects and spectacular photography after all. In my opinion, there are too different scenes of action. Some of them, e.g. the artist's castellum, are banal and clichés. There is a single reason why you can shut your eyes to some implausible plot turns and partial bad casting, it's Christiane Hörbiger. Her part is convincingly natural yet worked out to the last detail. Am I wrong or did she get much better over the years?
