Beautiful sets and music but I'm not sure this is as accessible as Syberberg's Hitler so very much of it may have gone over my head, sad to say.
Whereas Our Hitler isn't just about Hitler but all of German culture and more, this film doesn't escape the grand narrowness of Ludwig's castle into the rich world of 19th century Germany.
