A speculative drama about the loves and life of one of the best German writers
Historical drama about the triangular relationship between sisters Charlotte and Caroline von Lengenfeld and Friedrich Schiller, which was not documented, but is indicated in various sources (letters, diaries). Schiller then married the former. Caroline was already bound in an unfortunate marriage - but the two of them don't really get away from each other. Wonderfully light, romantic scenes and moments of happiness and harmony alternate with blows of fate and crises, but the crackling between the three always remains and this is due on the one hand to the great book and the direction of Dominik Graf, and on the other to the brilliant performances of the three leading actors Henriette Confurius, Hannah Herzsprung and Florian Stetter. So, no fear of costume dramas! This film deserves all your attention.
