One of the better German TV movies
23 April 2014 | by (Leipzig) – See all my reviews

Udo Jürgens is one of the most popular musicians in German history. Even though I don't like his music too much, this film gave me a good time, despite it's length (more than 3.5 hours!). Director Miguel Alexandre has made some good films in the past and this might be his best one. He stays focused on the characters and the story, doesn't use too much cliché and creates an authentic atmosphere. Even though the film is set in four different countries and is not always linear, I never got lost or bored. The film also avoids to become another piece of teaching Germans how bad their history is and, again, always stays focused on what is important. It was easy for me to feel with the characters and the story made sense. You see the small budget at some points in the film, but hey, for a TV movie it's still pretty big.
