The Tyrolian Uprising
6 June 2020 | by skepticskepticalSee all my reviews

I am visiting Austria and so decided to watch some films set here. Bergblut tells the tale of the Tyrolian uprising, along with an extended treatment of Tyrolian-Bavarian relations, of which I was frankly ignorant. The settings are beautiful and the conflict between the Tyrolians and the Bavarians and the French is convincingly portrayed. One thing I never understood was the character of Katharina. Her behavior struck me as bizarre, from her decision to live in the sticks with her new husband, Franz, a country bumpkin she met in Bavaria, to her willingness to stay with the horrible mother-in-law through thick and thin. But the most unbelievable of all was her over-the-top quest to prevent Franz from redeploying again.

Over all, I feel that I learned something from this film, which was beautifully photographed and decently acted.
