Background
30 December 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I know that fans of the man will be offended by my rating, some not even reading this. But let me tell you, that I had not heard of the character portrayed by Bruno Ganz here, nor had I read any of his books. Now why would I watch a movie about him then? That's the other thing. I have to mention it here once again: I avoid reading about the movies I'm going to watch. Bruno Ganz is a great actor and I was going in to watch his performance (and I was not disappointed in him).

But I had not idea or background info on what was going on. And that was a bad thing, because I could not put any of this into perspective. So I can only judge by what I was experiencing. In other words: If you are a fan and want to be offended, you will be. But try to look at this from another perspective, will you?

Apart from that and Brunos performance, the actor who portrayed the son, was not convincing. Not in my book at least. Acting-wise I though he was not up to the task. Which made the whole thing borderline watchable. But fortunately there was Bruno and he saved it somewhat ...
