I'm intrigued by the Net of these Magicians!!
4 July 2007 | by AMovieTheatreGoerSee all my reviews

I like so much the TV-movie "Die Manns - Ein Jahrhundertroman"! As Marianne Krull wrote in her beautiful book "Im Netz der Zauberer" (I think in English it is "In the Net of the Magicians"), I'm intrigued by Family Mann's world since I was a teenager. First of all, by Erika and Klaus, but also by the double soul of Thomas, the literary talent (Heinrich, Thomas, Klaus and Erika wrote such beautiful intense books!) and the problematic lives of the entire family, in a so dramatic age!

Also by the frustration of the younger Manns: Golo, Monika, Elisabeth and Michael, who worked hard to find their own way, with their passion for music and arts. Heinrich and his strange love for self-destructive women. And the sweet, mysterious Katia, a real angel who supported her husband career. This movie shows all that with good, convincing actors. It's good the director has inserted real interviews and photos between the fiction.

In the end: the real Erika (9 November 1905) was almost exactly one year elder than Klaus (18 November 1906), they had the same zodiacal sign and were called "the twins", (many friends thought that they were really twins). Well, Sophie Rois was born 1 June 1961 - Sebastian Koch 31 May 1962!!! What a coincidence!!!
