 Warning-Horrible April 23, 2012 By V. Johnson See All My Reviews "Werther is played by a short, paunchy, 50(?)year old Philippine man, and Lotte is played by tall, 40 year old European, who is taller than Werther. The set is sparse and disappointing, 1950's era with a TV in a living room. Boring and Lifeless." Report Abuse
