Cinematography[edit]

The cinematography in the film is incredible-- there should be discussion of this in the article.

For example: The shot of the soldier as he leans over the bridge railing (early in the film)--

The camera starts suspended below him as he hangs off the bridge an then it loops over and above him-- amazing!

Authorship[edit]

The rewrite of 28Apr05 was by me (YggdrasilsRoot). I logged in, but must have expired while I was working on the article, which is why the history just shows my current IP. Just wanted to stand with my opinion. YggdrasilsRoot 02:07, 28 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Steini's flashback[edit]

I had completely forgotten that Steini had killed Sissi's mother (plus the importance of the roof scene). Also, thanks for making this more NPOV.

Which patient is Sissi's father?

According to Tom Tykwer's audio comment on the DVD, it's Werner (Ludger Pistor). It is never really confirmed, only hinted, e.g. by him standing at the window in the end when she leaves the hospital. --Rodeng (talk) 10:08, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Headlines[edit]

For further research on this film:

Sissi/Kaiserin Related to Sissi from History[edit]

Is it possible that the title in German and the main charater's name Sissi is an allusion to the historical Sissi, who was a princess in Austria and the subject of a famous trilogy of German films starring Romy Schneider??134.243.211.185 (talk) 15:20, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it is. There is a removed scene in which Sissi watches Romy Schneider/Sissi on television among the patients, intercut with Bodo watching some war film with his brother. Hence the title of the film. The German title "Der Krieger und die Kaiserin" ("The warrior and the empress") is an even more obvious reference. Rodeng (talk) 08:51, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Nature of Bodo's Wife's death[edit]

I just watched this film last night, and the part of the synopsis about how Sissi learns the true nature of Bodo's wife's death is wrong. Walter tells Sissi that it was an accident, which Bodo himself later reveals to Sissi to be false. It is at this point that the movie flashes back to the wife's suicide. I am changing the article to reflect this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Pdp owl (talkcontribs) 19:04, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
