Very fine German style mystery/psycho thriller show, forerunner of "Dark"
12 March 2019 | by LentilSoupSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this series which can be seen as a forerunner to the German Netflix show "Dark" (some of the actors appearing in Weinberg also appear in Dark), although it has been produced on a much smaller budget and with a comparatively limited concept. Clearly, like "Dark", also "Weinberg" draws some inspiration from "Twin Peaks", as it revolves around some dark, hidden away secrets that families in a remote small town within a vine-growing valley are burdened with. But it takes a very unique, more German-style route, also very nicely using the particular landscape and some typical German habits and customs to good effect. The cinematography is excellent and a great ensemble cast performs marvelously. There are also some brilliantly satirical scenes, they are great and help make the show enjoyable. One would have wished some more of that. The plot unfolds nicely and is unpredictable until the end. The resolution at the end is a very fine idea (though not unprecedented) yet not really as spectacular as one might have expected or wanted. The pace is good but at some stages, the story seems to lose the momentum that has previously been built up. The showrunners could have been more daring, the compromises that had to be made in order to make the series compatible for airing on German TV can be noticed at times. While the series received mostly favorable reviews from critics in German media, it gained very little attention from the German audience. This is undeserved, and I definitely recommend watching.
