Der grüne Heinrich (original title)
1h 50min | Drama | 12 January 1994 (France)


Kissing seems to be a popular activity in this Swiss epic costume drama based on an 1880 novel. The story begins in Munich with lots of people vigorously kissing in the midst of a bacchanalia carnival. Two men, Lys and Henry are even going at it. Henry, a sensitive artist, is wearing a green suit which symbolizes his jealousy and immaturity. He, angry at Lys for cheating on his fiancee, challenges Lys to a duel upon the morrow. What Henry is really angry at is his own failure to marry his true love. The movie jumps back to Switzerland during Henry’s childhood soon after he lost his father. He wants his mother’s love, but she remains strict and aloof. At school Henry is picked on and it is only when he finds the theater that he meets the beautiful actress Judith. He becomes enamored and forgets all about his love affair with cousin Anna. Time passes quickly and an older Henry returns home to find dear Anna. His attentions are again diverted when the ageless Judith again appears. He does not realize that beloved but unappreciated Anna is soon to die of tuberculosis. Tragedy ensues.

User review:

The year is in the 1880’s. The lead character is the naive painter, Henrich. The story is his life and love for Anna, his childhood sweetheart. The ending as always for all artists is tragic. The production values are high and the scenery is magic. Shame about the script.

    Henrich had a brief romance as a child with the lovely Anna. But she moved from town. The movie begins several years later. Henrich never got over losing his childhood sweetheart. And now she is going to be married to Lys. Henrich’s jealously takes hold of him, and he challenges Lys to a duel. The movie then jumps back to Henrich’s childhood giving the backstory. Then it jumps back to the present. I honestly cannot fairly review this movie because I never finished watching it. I got bored after the story of his childhood, which was the only good part of the movie as far as I observed because the present bored me, and I turned the movie off after about 15 minutes. I suppose I didn’t give it a fair chance as it might have gotten better, and I plan on watching it again all the way through. So for now, I’ll rate this 3 stars because I really enjoyed the part about his childhood.
