      Boyd van Hoeij Variety Big-name German cast is aces, but helmer Heinrich Breloer struggles to lift his big-budget sudser to the level of epic tragedy. Jan 20, 2009 Full Review Jules Brenner Cinema Signals Isn't likely to achieve a widening of American interest in German cinema any more than it realizes its literary pedigree. Rated: 3/5 Oct 2, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Snyggt filmat, mycket påkostad och vackra miljöer från min barndoms Là 1/4beck. Bitvis seg, kunde ha klipts ned från tre timmar till två. Gör inte Thomas Manns roman rättvisa. En typisk tysk tv-produktion för att visas för hela familjen. Ger ändå en trea, men en svag sådan. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Mooi kostuumdrama over de ondergang van het "Buddenbrook" imperium....boeit vanaf begin tot einde Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Yay for August Diehl, okay for the rest. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Mann mag man eben - oder nicht. Wenn klar ist, worauf man sich einlaesst, geniesst man zweieinhalb Stunden lang exquisite Bilder und innovative Kamerafahrten, die den gesellschaftlichen Totentanz mit zurueckhaltender mannscher Emotion beschreiben. Wenn es nicht klar ist, worauf man sich einlaesst, kann die hoehepunktlose Studie schnell langweilig werden. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member dafuer, dass literatur-verfilmungen sehr schwierig umzusetzen sind, ein gut gelungener film. trotz seiner laenge nie langweilig Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member ein bisschen unrund, die Geschichte. Wer die Vorlage kennt, wird sicher noch mehr leiden.... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
