Deutsch ist eine gutturalen Sprache, Nicht sehr romantisch.

Many people do think that German is too harsh to be considered romantic. I think that when spoken right and not shouted, it is a beautiful and rhythmic language. I also believe that the media created a view of the language as being fierce. That is, most films with a German theme have to do with the Third Reich, Nazis shouting and "Heil Hitlering" each other.

Phillip Seymour Hoffman's last film, "A Most Wanted Man," was filmed in

Germany. Some German was spoken, but there was mostly German accents

used. This film did not show the language or the dialogue of them speaking

English as harsh. Actually, it was a very soft adaptation, as opposed to the

other German "Nazi" films you mention. Just thought you might be

interested in knowing that. The film was just OK. A little bit flat. Willem

Defoe was in it also.

I don't speak any German but I have a son who is majoring in German. Last night we went out to eat and there was a sign advertising a local brewery whose name contained an umlaut my son considered inappropriate. Apparently it was just some trendy font style. It really got under his skin. smile
