A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF A BAD MOVIE
31 August 2003 | by (MARSEILLE - FRANCE) – See all my reviews

(By advance, please excuse my bad and too scholastic English) This movie is a perfect example of all that one should not make. The picture is bad: no movement, no perspective. The photograph is bad: runny colours, grainy film. Actor & actress are without expression, without dynamic. NOTA: the superb hairstyle with streak hairs of Anna Magdalena (Like a bimbo girl in `Macumba Club' night dancing in far end of country side during the annual cattle market). Even the music is bad, not in respect with J.S.Bach. Comments with a voice out off picture is monotonous and encourage you to sleep. Dialogs are almost nonexistent and without interest. I don't know if the life of J.S.Bach is very thrilling (according this movie it seems that J.S.B. was a kind of civil servant attached to princes for write one cantata each week !), but his music is in domain of spirituality and it is perfectly concealed/ignored in this movie. Fortunately I suppose that the US audience shall has never the opportunity to see this very bad movie.
