Description
 
This is a region-free DVD-R without case or artwork.

In French with English subtitles.

This film is also known simply as "Werther." From Goethe’s Sorrows of Young Werther, Ophuls’ version moves from the 18th to the 19th century, and transforms the dramatic tale of a doomed young man’s loss of his true love (Annie Vernay) to a friend (Jean Galland) into a romantic tragedy that focusses—in typically Ophulsian style—on the sorrows of the woman the poet Werther (Pierre-Richard Willm) cannot seduce away from her strait-laced judge-fiancé.

Werther April 17, 2015
Reviewer: Robert Reese from Washington, IL United States  
DVD was excellent.  I haven't read the book but it is tempting to compare Ophuls to Goerte.
