Hedda Gabler

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Hedda (Rita Ramnani) and her husband Tesman (David R. Butler) have just returned from their honeymoon to their new homein the country when Hedda is hit with the realization married life that's just about to set in will bore her to death. And then she learns that Tesman, a scholar as of yet, might not get the professorship they both have hoped for, at least not as quickly as thought, and thus might be doomed to debt and obscurity, at least for a while. And that breaks Hedda a little more inside, especially since Tesman's competitor for the professorship is an old lover of hers, Ejlert (Francisco Ortiz). So she concocts a scheme to break Ejlert by destroying his best work and dragging him into a scandal, with the help of her very innocent friend Thea (Samantha E. Hunt) and schemer-by-habit Judge Brack (Jon-Paul Gates) - never once seeing that the trap might also spring on her ...


Given what a classic Henrik Ibsen's play has (deservedly) become since its premiere in 1891, I'll not waste too much space to praise the writing here but concentrate more on the other aspects of this movie - like the actors who fill their roles with verve and bring Ibsen's dialogue to life, bridging the different eras of the play's conception and the movie's production, and the directorial effort is restrained enough to give the words and actors room to breathe, but knows when to rely on strong pictures rather than an abundance of dialogue.

In all, well worth a watch!
