Frisch didn't deserve this
22 June 2006 | by a-cornlover_1988See all my reviews

Schloendorff at his worst. All his movies are badly acted, awfully staged and directed, but this adaptation of Max Frisch's fabulous classic novel is just ... I can't even tell you HOW bad it was!! Schloendorf didn't understand the novel at all, he seemed to be more than confused, and the actors! Poor Sam Shepard, poor Julie Delpy! Schloendorff hunts them through various (admittedly lovely) locations, lets them talk a lot and loses the paths of the author too often. This movie is no entertainment, it's not thought-provoking, it's just an assault on good taste. The only good thing about this movie is the title song sung by Ute Lemper, the jazz standard "Careless Love Blues". But for that it might suffice to buy the soundtrack. My, this movie is awful!
