Principal shooting has begun in Budapest on Good, Vicente Amorin’s adaptation of CP Taylor’s award-bagging play, and Total Film is excited.
And so, it seems, is Amorin. “Good is everything you don't expect from a period film set against such a calamitous moment in history,” he said.
“It's colourful, exciting, funny and utterly relevant. This film involves us in the buzz of a nation on the rise where anything is possible and 'good' people get caught up in a stampede that is heading over a cliff.”
With Brits Mark Strong (Tristan & Isolde) and TF favourite Jason Isaacs also grabbing roles in the film, Good will take a long, hard stare at a German professor in 1930s Frankfurt who joins the Nazi party. Believing he’s doing the right thing, the misguided academic ends up selling out his own family and a Jewish friend, even as he junks the morals he used to teach.
Good is currently scheduled for a 2008 release.
