Big-name German cast is aces, but helmer Heinrich Breloer struggles to lift his big-budget sudser to the level of epic tragedy. Mueller-Stahl returns here, as do many crew members.
Jean Mueller-Stahl is the patriarch of the family, based in the Baltic Sea port of Luebeck, Germany, in the midth century. Business is thriving, and eldest son Thomas Mark Waschke and only daughter Tony Jessica Schwarz are both of marrying age. The main goal of their younger sibling, Christian August Diehl , is to enjoy life to the fullest. A handsome student Alexander Fehling with whom she shares a passionate kiss is considered an unsuitable party. In this adaptation, the Buddenbrooks are not tragically thwarted by fate, but simply unlucky in love and business, which often makes pic feel like a soap — albeit one in splendid period duds.
Further story beats are all neatly timed to coincide with future commercial breaks, as at each minute mark, a major event occurs a funeral, a birth, a death. Production design deals in chocolate-box views of 19th-century Germany.
Schwarz and Diehl are socko in the showy parts and Waschke, in a restrained role, is their equal. Popular on Variety.
