Helmuth Berger, 9 May 2017
Author: Kirpianuscus from Romania

it is his film. in so measure, than seems be created around him. because he is Dorian Gray. without any effort. in clear way. and the message remains the message of book - the art as form of escape from the pressure of every day life. so simple and pragmatic. the difference from other adaptations - maybe the science of using the details defining the lead character in careful manner for give the portrait of selfish under noble appearances. maybe, the science to suggest more than a B movie for the science of Herbert Lom to use the sparkles of role. maybe, for the presence of Helmuth Berger who could be enough for a theme who preserves in clear manner the spirit and life and fall of Oscar Wilde.
