| A very entertaining flirt with death
"Die Geschichte vom Brandner Kaspar" is another film adaption of a traditional Bavarian story rooted in the 19th century. It deals with very serious matters, such as intrigues, envy, murder, and loss of beloved family members. On the other hand it also includes love, forgiveness, and the knowledge that the little problems on earth do not really matter in the end. This is where the movie shows has its strength too. Bully Herbig achieves to impersonate death as belonging to human life, and therefore being very human. By the comic relief of his acting the movie connects depth and entertainment in a very palatable combination.

In my opinion this is one of the better German movies of the last ten years, and definitely worth watching. Even more so as it is set in a beautiful panoramic landscape: in the Bavarian mountains.
