Format: DVD
I heard nothing about this movie before I saw it and wasn't expecting much, given a lot of bad historical movies recently. But this is a really first rate telling of the historical events that sparked the Reformation. Not only that, it is a beautifully filmed and well-acted movie. The sets were magnificent and captured the period perfectly. I thought Joseph Fiennes too slight and reserved to play the stocky, robust Luther, and I suppose the one thing I missed was a sense of Luther's earthiness. But his acting in other respects was superb. He was, however, outshone by Peter Ustinov's Frederick the Wise, who was, well, wise. The movie succeeds in portraying a complex relationship between Luther and Frederick. I am not sure how historically accurate this is, but it is very believable. As for representing the complex issues that led Luther to do what he did, the movie succeeded in that as well. While the Peasant's Revolt was covered a little superficially I suppose that is inevitable given the time restrictions of a two hour movie. The producers would have needed a mini-series to do that.

Format: DVD
Luther is a remarkable film in many ways. One disclaimer should be made -- this is not a documentary, in which the standard phrase about scenes being created or adapted for dramatic purposes would be made. No such disclaimer is given here, but the serious observer watching for history as well as entertainment should be warned not to accept everything at face value.
The performances are solid, occasionally stunning. Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in 'Shakespeare in Love') does an exceptional job portraying Germany's turbulent priest, whose search for knowledge and personal salvation leads him to question all around him. The action moves quickly in the film, collapsing complex historical and theological items into almost single-issue ciphers for clarity in the film -- one might be forgiven for coming away from the film believing that Luther tacked up a declaration of 1 Thesis rather than 95 Theses, and that the Roman church was corrupt entirely. The tension within the church is alluded to in a few spots (the cardinal who hopes for a pope who will save the church, etc.), but by and large, the Roman church is portrayed with a broad brush as evil.
The scenes in which the peasants revolt and the people take Luther's messages to extremes are dramatically produced and emotionally moving without being gruesome or needlessly gory. The complexities of the people's wavering support for Luther, and Luther's occasional collaborations against the people, are similarly glossed over.
Fiennes is shown in a few points preaching to the people, as a priest and as a street leader -- Luther was known to be an effective preacher and teacher, and this comes across here.

This account of the life of Martin Luther is captivating and spellbinding. Intense is the word I use to describe the whole movie. My understanding is that the story is quite accurate. The movie begins in Germany in 1507, when God called Luther to become a monk in the Augustine order. His father disapproved but Luther knew he had to obey God. While in Wittenberg as a student, he began to question some of the Catholic church's practices, such as relics and indulgences. His eyes were opened to the suffering and poverty of the Catholic peasants, and how the church's hierarchy lived in wealth and splendor. He began to teach against unbiblical practices and taught instead the true Gospel of forgiveness and salvation.

Luther also resisted the power of the Catholic church, exposing the fear that was put upon the people so that they would give of their few resources to the church. Superstition was rampant. Earlier in dedicating himself to God, Luther prayed, "I am Yours. Save me." For the rest of Luther's life, God answered that prayer, saving not only Luther but through Luther preaching the true Gospel about the love of God, God saved a nation. From Germany, the Gospel of Jesus Christ traveled through Europe and eventually around the world. Luther paid a price for his obedience to God and often lived in fear for his life. In the end, God blessed him with support and a wife (who was formerly a nun) and children. God used Luther's life and dedication to Himself to set a strong foundation of truth from the Word of God, in the church.

The performances were superb. Sets and costumes were authentic and realistic, right down to the dirt and squalor that the peasants lived in compared to the opulence and wealth that surrounded the hierarchy in the church.
