The Good German

Steven Soderbergh Estados Unidos, 2006

Juan Barquin's rating of the film Intriga en Berlín

The first twenty five minutes (prior to the first character death) are uncomfortably edited - trapped between a longing to be a noir classic and a silent classic. Tobey's performance was less than pleasant and I have to admit that it broke into a better flow once he was out of the picture. But like many others say - although it had certain charm at times, this is a Soderbergh experiment that could have gone better.
