After seeing the play on a real stage, then reading it and after that seeing the film on TV, I was rather disappointed. The film is missing some important parts, the drive is missing and the whole story with Lady Milford is completely misunderstood (in the play, she leaves Germany, in the film she's just standing on the window???), the Hofmarschall is miscast and also misinterpreted. There are good moments in the movie, the photography is nice and the director caught the time right. But after all it just felt wrong. Luise's got no spirit, Ferdinand seems just to be nuts, not jealous. The music was very unusual and too cheesy from my point of view. Strange after all. But good to see how you shouldn't stage a classic play.
