The movie is history as kitsch, not quite on the Life is Beautiful level of manipulation, but clumsy.
A glorious surprise.
Performances aside, the movie is dull and perfunctory.
The story of the Comedian Harmonists, who brought to the waning days of Weimar a bubbly frivolity, is a rich one. Rich enough to keep you watching and wanting to know more.
Only when we delve deeper into the material does it become apparent that the director has a more ambitious agenda, and that agenda makes The Harmonists a satisfying experience.
As director, Vilsmaier again has a firm grip on tone and pace.
... a grandly realized and skillfully executed melodrama that seems all too familiar.
Entertaining, poignant, and filled with catchy music.
A very entertaining true story.
A wonderful film which should not be missed.
This German film, based on the true story of this legendary vocal ensemble, shows how politics colors everything: no creative soul can ever be apolitical.
A very satisfying film that should delight intended audiences.
