Friedrich Schiller - The Poet as a Young Man

CHF 23.00 / EUR 21.00

After 16 years' experience on stage, the actor and playwright Curt Goetz (1888-1960) made his debut as a film director and producer with the silent movie Friedrich Schiller – Eine Dichterjugend (1923). Writing razor sharp dialogue was his profession; acting comic parts in the theatre – without having to renounce speech – was his craft. And that is why the silent cinema presented such a special artistic challenge to Goetz, a task whose accomplishment was prompted by a difficult subject: the poet Friedrich Schiller's adolescence. An enthusiast of the spoken word makes a movie about the early life of a powerfully eloquent poet, but has to eschew the cadence of poetry. Under such circumstances, the artistic potential of a film director must prove itself.
