Too perfect
11 November 2002 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

A monstrous production with a lot of Austrian stars involved was shown this year in Austrian cinemas first, then on television. Xaver Schwarzenberger directed, famous author Felix Mitterer wrote the script. A dozen renouned actors have slipped in 19th century costumes.

The result is overwhelming in a way. Nobody disappointed me. But something is missing in the whole project. Maybe it is a little flaw, a little surprise. This biopic is too slick, too perfect. There are even too many stars (maybe casting Ottfried Fischer as Bavarian king Maximilian was the trigger that lead to me disliking the film), there is no space for risks left. Therefore, even the cool Tyrolean accent of the characters becomes boring after a couple of minutes.

The Andreas Hofer film is a mere commercial project – though, admittedly, very well done. I would like to mention two of the actors specifically: Franz Xaver Kroetz is fascinating as a fundamentalist priest, and Julia Stemberger, who plays Hofer's wife Anna, shows that she can actually act. I still don't like her but at least she managed to impress me in this role.

However, I don't think this is going to become anyone's favourite movie of all time.
