Knocked together first Agfa Colour Feature
30 March 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

The shooting of this film took almost 2 years due to ongoing innovations of the colour processing and some personal problems. Whether these were the causes or not, fact is that this a knocked together, as good as unwatchable bad film, that is far below the standards of director Georg Jacoby whose aspirations were already never that high.

With a clumsy told story, there is an incredible obtuse ballet on the grass, and Marika Rökk's dancing that is plumper than ever. Even Willy Fritsch and Franz Grothe's music can not save this one.

This film is worth watching for one aspect only: being the first feature in Agfa colour.
