very informative about times and mannerisms
17 June 2015 | by discount1957See all my reviews

It's possible to see (or feel)a film under very different aspects, as everyone knows. So you can give a film a very good rating for one aspect, and a very bad rating for a second aspect, and so on. The main-question is: Are you entertained, or even better informed about something, by this film ? 'Das Superweib' may be characterized as having a weak plot (or a bad execution of a worthy plot, or a not very original plot), but at the same time it's a very good showcase for the mannerisms of its actors and actresses, if you are interested in German films and actors. You learn something about the characteristic traits of those in Germany well-known actors that you can see in their other films as well. And very many of them appear in this film, although some of them only as cameos, too short for that(Armin Rohde, for example).But with most of them you can judge for yourself, if a certain actor may be interesting for you in other films as well, or if you don't like his/her mannerisms and looks. And the film is well-made in order to get those impressions,in terms of surroundings, camera-work and everything belonging to it,not only sufficient, but very good. And it's an interesting picture of an atmosphere typical for its time, and may be historically interesting in the future..... just as seeing Liselotte Pulver again, who long ago,in the Nineteen-Fifties, acted in films that are now similarly interesting in historical terms.
