An iconic writers growing up's journey into passion,
This review is from: Young Goethe in Love [Import] (DVD)
Simply beautyful, and addictivly Romantic, germany's most famous writer and poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe. Through his first Falling in Love experience, that inspired his world famous novel "Young Werther in Love" (Das Leiden des jungen Werther).
i was struck by the beautyful Barock time ambiance, wonderful recreated 18th century villages with the help of masterful CGI effects.
The actor also looks a lot the young Goethe.
The scenes from inside the buildings remind me a lot of Spitzwegs paintings, that come alive.
I was enchanted.
