In the remote Alpine village of Tolzbad at the turn of the century, people talk quietly and restrain their movements lest avalanches come and kill them. This atmosphere lends itself to repressed emotions - shown through the parallel stories of butler student Johann lusting after his mother (an old flame of the mysterious Count Knotkers) and Klara's attraction to her father (who lusts after his other daughter), leading to duels and suicidal plunges galore. All this is shot in the style of an early German sound film, complete with intertitles, deliberately crackly soundtrack and 'hand-tinted' colour effects.

Lee Anne W (ag) wrote: This movie is DIRTY. As in "watch on HBO after your parents go to bed" dirty. I went back and read my review of the book, and sought out Roger Ebert's movie review, before I put my thoughts together. Apparently, the movie takes liberties with the character of Theresa. I still feel as I did on reading the book, though: this chick needs an analyst. Still, the movie is an interesting look at New York in the seventies.

Keith T (kr) wrote: Roger Daltrey as Franz Liszt, Paul Nicholas as Richard Wagner, Ringo Starr as The Pope, a musical score by Rick Wakeman (with a little help from Liszt & Wagner) and Ken Russell in the director's chair makes for a highly entertaining film, in which Ken took excess to new heights! Much of it is pure genius, although as often with Ken Russell, flawed genius.

Richard D (de) wrote: This starts out as one of Stone's more promising recent films, but after the first half hour, it descends into a mire of too many characters and subplots to really hold your interest. At nearly 3 hours, this is far too long to support it's main plot line, which is a fairly familiar rise-and-fall, lessons learned sports narrative. The film becomes a blur of subplots and hyperkinetic editing ... I couldn't wait for it to end. At what point in his career did Al Pacino become such an uniteresting actor?

David D (kr) wrote: This has to be one of the best movies made , not just because of the storyline but because of how two can create such an outstanding performance. The late Robin Williams knew how to make people laugh but this is a movie where he can make people cry, the great man himself really inspired a generation...5/5
