Young Goethe in Love

This tells the story of poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and how an early love affair inspired his work. Alexander Fehling is quite enjoyable as Goethe, a sloppy law student who falls in love with a local singer (Miriam Stein). What he doesn’t know is that she is promised to his supervisor (Moritz Bleibtreu) in an arranged marriage. There’s nothing in this movie that is unique, but director Philipp Stölzl keeps things moving along at a pleasant-enough pace, and it’s worth seeing for the performances Fehling and Stein. It’s a nice diversion for those who like their romances with style and brains.
