Great premise but ultimately only middling
3 January 2019 | by max4movieSee all my reviews

Full Review on my blog max4movies: Weinberg is a 6-part mystery miniseries (total runtime 322 minutes) set in a small village in the West of Germany. Surrounded by vineyards, the village is remote from other cities and has many rather weird inhabitants. The series follows the amnesiac character Johannes Fuchs (credited "the Hero") who awakes on top of a vineyard only to witness the death of a beautiful young woman. The mystery genre is often hit (e.g., Picnic at Hanging Rock) or miss (e.g., Lady in the Water), as movies or series need to create an atmosphere that makes it easier for viewers to suspense disbelief. A perfect example is Twin Peaks (1990-1991) which features an array of strange characters living in a confined space showing very curious behavior. Weinberg proves the mystery genre can succeed on a modest budget, because the premise is intriguing and believable. However, in many ways the show fails to parallel its great overall concept with matching quality in direction, editing, and actors' performances. Overall, I would recommend this show to fans of the mystery genre, although it might just serve as a decent starter for what the creators could achieve with a higher budget and more time. Read my full review on my blog movie-discourse.
