Audience Reviews for Goethe!

    With Johann Goethe(Alexander Fehling) in short order flunking his doctoral exam and being rejected by a publisher, it is no wonder that his father(Henry Hubchen) sends him to the provinces to apprentice under the very watchful eye of Albert Kestner(Moritz Bleibtreu). At least, Johann makes a quick friend in Wilhelm Jerusalem(Volker Bruch) but the dancing leaves a little something to be desired. At least, until Johann bumps into Lotte Buff(Miriam Stein) and hears her sing in church. "Young Goethe in Love" is a mixed bag to say the least, starting with its visuals which include a couple of superb shots but is more often than not rather shoddy. In trying to show that a writer needs to have experience before setting pen to paper, the movie depicts Goethe's early story as little more than just another banal story of romance. That's all the while there is something much darker going on beneath the surface which while leading to a few surprises that salvage the movie also almost go unacknowledged until the postcript.

    Really nice, beautiful, and essentially true story about a great mind. A classic style love story produced in a literate, artistic, and tasteful manner...much unlike most cheap Hollywood romance productions these days. Really well done film...

    In 18th century Europe, Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe is a young scholar with abundant affection, but challenged by a competition. Iambic, but considerably hackneyed, Goethe! eventually conquered simplicity and monotony by abandoning the conventions of the genre satisfying the audience with an unexpected accommodating resolution. Enlightened.
