Stylistically, the most engaging aspect of the picture is Stölzl's direction.

It's just as gorgeously shot, just as clever, just as frothy and dynamic as the period pieces of 15-20 years ago.

Fans of "Shakespeare in Love" should receive this one warmly. I would watch it again.

An old-fashioned romance that's easy to like even if you have no interest in German literature, illegal duels or the more romantic aspects of committing suicide.

Pain plus time, this film reminds us, can result in poetry.

The story of a talented but not yet mature young man who stumbles upon the topic that would lead to his fame: love, and the loss of it.

Like a porcelain dish commemorating a famous person, this biopic has little to teach us about the great German writer but sure makes him look adorable.

You needn't know a thing about Goethe or his works to enjoy the picture.

"Young Goethe in Love" is a delight on its own terms, even if it has little to do with the real Goethe; here is a randy young man not a million miles apart from Tom Jones.

So long as one doesn't take it as a history lesson,...a moderately enjoyable period exercise in quasi-biography that's engaging in an old-fashioned way.

A lively, deeply felt film that convinces us a historical figure's life was as compelling as the work he achieved.

Attempts to do for the German romantic poet what Amadeus did for Mozart, with limited success.

We get a classic situation, but no less potent for its being familiar. As always, the personalities make or break it, and here they make it.

Charming in a way that American romantic comedies have all but forgotten, Young Goethe in Love is by turns cute, campy and endearingly cliched.

A biopic about the early adventures of Goethe at work, in love, and creating his first masterwork.

Film Journal International

Though far from the rollicking success of Shakespeare in Love or as moving as Goethe's original tale, this visually lush, well-acted German-language biopic is a worthy take on a formative period in the great writer's life.

Highbrow pedigree is mostly window dressing for a commercial period romance about Germany's literary giant.
