Did You Know?

Goofs

The copy of "The Sorrows of Young Werther" is clearly a paperback edition with a glued binding in a soft cover. In 1774, such mass produced bindings were unknown. The printed pages would have been in joined together in a sewn binding, which would then be connected to the front boards of the book. See more »

He was young and needed the money
30 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Even Goethe was young once (yes I know, some things seem completely ridiculous now don't they) and was not the genius we all came to know ... Wait, do we really know him? Actually I wouldn't claim to know him. So we know his work and may like that or not. Think it's great or not. But what do we know about the human behind that?

Only way to make the movie more awkward would have been, to show him as a 2-year old (though that would be almost intriguing ... and I might even line up to watch that). As it is, we get to see him, as we have not seen him before. So the filmmakers have the freedom to show a human side on him. If any of this is based on anything in particular? I wouldn't be able to tell you.

What I can tell you, is that this is very light entertainment. It also tells us, that even great persons are people too. If you can live with that and enjoy a little story that has no aim to please anything more than lightweight entertainment, than you can't do anything wrong by watching this
