There's a viable story lurking within the World War II melodrama The Poet, but much of it likely landed on the cutting room floor.

This account of the WWII star-crossed love between a rabbi's daughter and a war-hating Teuton officer wants very much to be taken seriously. This proves impossible, since the script, casting and wartime atmosphere play as pure make-believe.

The audience is herded from cliché to unintentional farce to insult-to-its-intelligence.
