Peer Gynt

  Henrik Ibsen’s folk tale based on a dramatic poem Peer Gynt is probably best known for the haunting orchestral version of Edward Grieg, the general public. Finally, have “Solvejgs Song” and “In the Hall of the Mountain King” proved to be a veritable classic hits. Today, however, the music for the theatrical performance is usually omitted because it is generally perceived as no longer fit. It is mainly the complexity of history and the peculiarities of the text written in verse, a cinematic reworking how those directed by Uwe Janson case would be extremely ambitious project that, in spite of a predominantly young Castes more like shrewd connoisseur of the original substance and enthusiastic theater-goers used.

The “Nordic Faust” Peer Gynt (Robert Stadlober) is a simple peasant boy from his dreary environment and his perception of life as a miserable time and again by gossip and tall tales, little escapes. His constant companion is the mysterious “button molder” (Ulrich Muhe), an allegory of death, thoughts and fears dominated the peers, while his mother Aase (Susanne-Marie Wrage) and his great love of Solveig try to give the restless stop. Peer pulls it out into the world of adventure, Droll and Scryb Sprites wait for him. But nowhere is peer, everything is for him merely an interlude, an interlude back in the hunt for love, to Peer finally back in his homeland, to realize that he forgot himself in his pursuit of self altogether.

Many escapades of Peer Gynt’s exuberant imagination saves from Uwe Janson and practices, like his protagonist Robert Stadlober with celebrity guests and the rest of the ensemble in a noble restraint, can the depths and existential issues are seldom just. Instead of real dramatic climaxes, it is mainly the motives from Edvard Grieg’s music, the limping painfully dramatic attack on helping the poor and emotions suggest that the find in the images are not merely suggestive correspondences. The bottom falls out whether its enormous claim all the more sobering: In the division such as the television channel ZDF theater, the film is an enchanting place, why the film seems to find its way into the movie theater must remain, probably an unsolved mystery.
