Slick, thoughtless 'modernization'
25 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Other reviewer is right: this is pretty poor. One wouldn't mind a modernizing version if it were done intelligently, but this is trivial and shallow. Watch the East German (DEFA) version from 1958 instead - it isn't ideal, but is generally on a much higher level. (I was interested in film versions since I teach this play to German literature students quite often, and wanted a film to accompany the reading.) I suspect German reviewers and viewers may have thought similarly, since this director has never done anything since. The 1913 version by Friedrich Feher (a significant director) looks intriguing, but do not know if this is available anywhere.
