So the semester comes to an end and we will soon have our last film night.
Remember when a bunch of people had signed up to go to the Portland International Film Festival to see the brand-new German film “Goethe!!“?? Well, since the screening was cancelled we weren’t able to go but I managed to get the DVD from Germany! My sister was kind enough to get it in Germany and bring it with her when she comes visit me.
So be there:
Tuesday April, 26th
The trailer looks like fun! So check it out:

Here is more information about the film:
DIRECTOR: Philipp Stölzl – GERMANY
Before Germany’s most famous literary genius wrote the hugely influential The Sorrows of Young Werther, the book that launched a thousand broken-hearted suicides, he lived its story of love lost. In Stölzl’s engaging historical drama, Alexander Fehling plays Goethe, who, having failed his law exams in 1772, takes a job clerking for Judge Kester (Moritz Bleibtreu). Bored, he continues to defy his father’s wishes by persisting in his writing, and one day he meets the lovely Lotte. Sparks fly, a courtship blossoms, love blooms—but Lotte is betrothed to another. “Sparkling cinematography, gorgeous costumes and sets, and a story of star-crossed love—these are just the ingredients needed to lovingly concoct a filmic biography chronicling the early years of a young man whose initial experience of romantic love would eventually alter the course of the literary world.”—Screen International. (102 min.)
