Below par Leuwerik offering
19 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

'Die Rote', is adapted from a novel by Alfred Andersch. Ruth Leuwerik is the carrot-topped protagonist, at wit's end over her disappointing marriage and disillusioning secondary romance. She drops both husband and lover to head to Venice, hoping there to land a job and to enjoy a more fulfilling life. Each person with whom Leuwerik comes in contact is also running away from himself or herself; so much for Venice. After being victimized by deceivers and exploited by self-absorbed martyrs, Leuwerik wearily returns home.

Well-intended but somewhat muddled picture that sealed Ruth Leuwerik's fate as box-office cyanide after a string of monumental flops. Her performance is very subtle, giving the over-complicated story its little coherence.

Kaeutner, who just vowed critics and public alike with the superb adaption of 'Ein Glass Wasser' with Gustav Gruendgrens, Hilde Krahl and an overwhelming Liselotte (Lilo) Pulver in the leads, is ill-at-ease with this very talky weltschmerz material.
