About Bruno Ganz you can say that even a boring film is worth being watched just because of his acting. Which is so true once again. His acting is great, even if in the beginning it feels sometimes overacted. Why do I think it a boring film? I haven't read the book, but I'm convinced it's very interesting and moving at the same time. You probably can imagine every scene being told by Tiziano in all its colours. In the movie this doesn't work because you see those beautiful sceneries of Tuscany not letting room for your own fantasy to develop pictures in your mind. Somehow the movie feels like the pages just being filmed one by one. A pity the film wasn't done in Italian, it would have been so much more authentic. In addition, obviously Elio Germano (Folco) spoke his text in Italian being dubbed over in German which kind of feels strange because his lips speak the Italian words which don't match the German text in movement. If you like Bruno Ganz and the not worn out pictures of Tuscany go and watch the movie, if not, go for some other movie.
