Young Goethe in Love 3.0 stars

Young Goethe in Love movie poster

A full tankard of gemütlich-kitsch about the ripening genius Goethe (handsome Alexander Fehling) who rouses his sleepy muse by falling hard for the provincial beauty Charlotte Buff (totally engaging and sexy Miriam Stein, who has a bold touch of Debra Winger). Philipp Stölzl’s beautifully outfitted and photographed movie is in the Amadeus line and fondles the old facts engagingly. As the romance spins through its turnstile of fated, sometimes erotic changes, we sense the 18th-century birth of Germanic Romanticism in Goethe’s obsessive, doomed hero of pathos, Werther. 2011.
