Jew on that
28 December 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This is a very delicate subject and the filmmaker at hand might not have been the best choice. His directing (Moritz B. as Goebbels would have needed some guidance), his poor choices in staging some scenes and other flaws become very apparent.

On the other hand, he is not afraid to go places, that others might not have dared (an intercourse that is so absurd, it's almost funny, if it weren't tragic ... and a scene you will either love or hate). Of course the faux documentary style tries to recreate a feeling of what happened back then. But the fact, that he was just a director for hire, seems to apparent.

He did not really check or confront himself too much with the story. Instead opting on doing what he got from the script (or his interpretation of it). And it's a shame that some powerful scenes such a the one in a tent, were the movie is shown, with reactions, is getting sidetracked and completely dismissed by the next set-up outside the tent, when it seems to be a completely different movie, with no class or style attached to it.

Moretti on the other hand (as most actors), try their best. You cannot fault him (or his "wife" in the movie) for any shortcomings of the end result. With a subject matter like this you could expect a better movie. Some parts are really good and it's ambiguity is still something I cherish (that's why I rated it so "high"). Still there is no constant flow and the mood is all over the place ... same goes for Bleibtreus Goebbels ...
