Heinrich Breloers Brecht at the Berlinale : the Courage of The mothers

in The end, he still gets his own Theater am schiffbauerdamm. It is March, 1954, the young GDR still suffering from the consequences of the uprising of June 1953 and its suppression. Bertolt Brecht dies in 1956, with only 58 years of age.

A clueless, restless playwright, weary theatre animal: not so much to illustrate On one of the last rehearsals, he leads, he encourages, with the fragile voice of the actor to"". It is, as Burghard television appearances, plays the late B. B., delicate, transparent, an exhausted tyrant, the young women offer their consolation.

Yes, just a movie: Heinrich Breloer ("die Manns", "Speer und er") makes it here, just as Brecht was illustrated. In proven Breloer-the way he cuts scenes and documentary against each other. This has a strange effect. The reality appears like a dream of the actor. Brecht's hometown of Augsburg, the first Triumph at the Munich kammerspiele ("drums in the night"), the arrival in Berlin: Before television appearances takes on the Brecht, in exile in America, Tom Schilling as a Junior Brecht on thickness tight pants. Breloers a two-parter, a total of three hours of work proficient at the most important biographical stations, without that you would have to contend with to really new insights. Brecht and his colleagues work on a strange kind of historically.

The proportion of women is increasing all the time

Breloers docu-drama has some wax-like, especially in the case of the theatre were the scenes of the "three penny Opera". But actually you have to talk to the women. It was, as the research has shown, and Elisabeth Hauptmann's play. It always comes back to the short and here. Leonie Benesch is struggling in this role for recognition, but Mainly to the attention and love of the voracious, exploitative Superman. Ruth Berlaus Part is larger. Trine Dyrholm showing the Drama of the woman who is pushed aside, because there are now Younger, they did their best to keep Brecht on water.

The proportion of women in the Brecht-Empire is steadily increasing, to Helene Weigel. Adele Neuhauser power of the principle, Palin with hardness and joke and Wiener anger so alive, that scares. The Heli, holding the reins in the Hand ... Only the dramaturgy of the Breloer-Brecht is a bit altmännisch.

you Can show? "We ask questions", this is a Brecht-Maxime and requirement. So: Why was he after the huge commercial success of "the Threepenny Opera", the author of Communist Teaching, which is today, the blood freeze in the veins? How he was received after his death, where the theatre with Brecht today?

would be a Lot to ask, but there's a new favourite coming into the picture, is already a classic finish, the "Galileo" to celebrate the world with "Courage". It's too smooth, too easy, without a change in Rhythm. But always with a cigar.
