an amazing journey back in time ...
31 March 2003 | by hamlet-16See all my reviews

This German/Dutch documentary is a fascinating glimpse at one of history's most controversial monarchs.

The film allows us to enter both the public and private worlds of this most complex leader. It even allows us to hear his declaration of war in 1914.

The films of the Kaiser show a man who had a sense of fun, rather unexpected in a man with the reputation of the Kaiser.

The film is also a bravura technical achievement, blending a huge assemblage of film and stills and even an extremely rare piece of colour film of a royal wedding in 1913 is included.

I hope the film is available in an English language version one day because WW1 had such massive impact on the world and an understanding of such a significant player in the events is essential for any student of history.
