of Christian Haller
In his story "Narcissus and Goldmund" from 1930, Herman Hesse addressed the friendship of two unequal young men. Now Stefan Rutzowitzky (The Counterfeiters) filmed the story. The film will be released in German cinemas on March 12th.

As a student in the medieval Mariabronn monastery, the deeply religious Narcissus and Goldmund, who had been rejected by his father, became best friends despite – or perhaps because of – their contrast. Narcissus falls in love with Goldmund, who, however, leaves the convent community, which is perceived as restricting. Years later, the two meet again and Narcissus learns of his friend's experiences.
Oscar winner Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Fakers) adapts Hermann Hesse's novel as a feature film with a realistic medieval image. Unlike Hesse, who narrated chronologically, Ruzowitzky shows Goldmund's years of traveling and apprenticeship as part of episodic flashbacks. In addition to the love affairs of the Lebemann and the search for his mother, it is primarily about his way to artistic expression. Sabin Tambrea (Ku'damm 59) and Jannis Niewöhner (Youth without God) fill their roles harmoniously. The secondary characters are, however, partly getting used to, if for example from 4 blocks well-known Kida Khodr Ramadan with monk hairstyle occurs.

Conclusion: Large-scale historical drama about art and life that reconciles two contradictory lifestyles.
