User Reviews

Well photographed drama

Well photographed drama about neglected wife(Helm) and weak husband (Diessl). Brigitte Helm is very good in her part as frustrated woman who tries to escape from her boring marriage. A bit slow moving sometimes but worth to see it. Reconstructed in 1998. Thomas Kunze
