The film tells the story of Katharina who has to escape from Bavaria to Tyrol together with her husband. Of all the times in the year of 1809. There she faces these tough times of the revolution and its leader Andreas Hofer on a small croft in the Mountains of Passira, truly engaged in the chaos of war. An historical adventure reviving the 200th anniversary of the Hofer-Revolt against Bavaria and Napoleon. Shot on original settings.Written by
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.
