Jakob The Liar

2

Jakob The Liar "goes back and forth between very funny and very tragic," claims Robin Williams on the DVD. No it doesn't, Robin. Because every time it heads towards tragic, out comes the sugar for a liberal sprinkle, while it never comes close to being funny at all. The original '74 German version of the same story was Oscar-nominated. The Hollywood interpretation? Utterly forgettable.
