Full movie description "Die Geschichte vom kleinen Muck":An old man living in an oriental city tells the story of his life to a group of kids: He too was once a young boy by the name of Little Muck - much like them, but with better manners and a heap of problems. Having lost his father at early age, little Muck is expelled from home by his greedy relatives. He wanders off into the desert hoping to find the merchant who sells good fortune. Amidst the dunes of sand he comes across a small house owned by a wicked woman and her many cats. She wants to make Little Muck her servant, but he manages to escape by stealing a pair of magic shoes which enable him to run faster than any man in the country. From there he heads right into the next set of challenges... Based on a fairy tale by Wilhelm Hauff.
Reviews of the Die Geschichte vom kleinen Muck"Die Geschichte vom kleinen Muck" or "Der kleine Muck" or "The Story of Little Mook" is an East German 100-minute movie from 1953. The director is Wolfgang Staudte and the writer is Peter Podehl and both were really successful in their respective fields, even if only Staudte (if at all) is much more than the script writer here going by today's popularity. Podehl mostly worked on children-oriented works while Staudte also made more "serious" films. But this fact also shows you that this movie here is much more than just a watch for kids. The writer of the original fairy tale is Wilhelm Hauff and if you heard his name before, you may know that his tales are frequently much darker and also much more violent than the works of Hans Christian Andersen or the Brothers Grimm for example. he also wrote "Das kalte Herz", which has been adapted into film many times.
But back to this one here. I already wrote in the title that I felt this is a somewhat decent achievement. And this especially refers to the visual side. The costumes and sets are all really well done and don't need to be shy of a comparison with Hollywood. This film looks much newer than early 50s and it is difficult to believe from the looks of it that this one is already easily over 60 years old. One reason for that may be the bright colors given the fact that there are still German black-and-white films from 20 years or more later, such as Schlöndorff's "Der Fangschuß". The acting in the little Muck movie is okay too, but the one big problem I had here were the characters and the story. It was really difficult to care for any of them I must say and for their actions. Yes you should not take everything seriously (or anything?) in films from the fantasy genre, but still I need at least some credibly dramatic substance and I was missing it here. Quite a shame the film ended up this underwhelming with regards to the plot as all the other aspects I mentioned were convincing and the sound track that I have not yet mentioned was good too. "Der kleine Muck" is one of these German films where everybody has heard the title here in Germany, but hardly anybody knows the story. Maybe the reason is that Hauff's story just isn't good enough to have people care about it as much as they do about other fairy tales. I give this one a thumbs-down. Not recommended.
