A masterpiece.
9 March 2007 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

This film is a treasure. It's really witty, funny... full or light eroticism, beautifully performed... lovely songs.

The long sequence of Lilian Harvey being driven to her "new Villa", singing a song is nothing less than a 10 minutes masterpiece in its own right. Harvey is sensational, wonderfully spontaneous. The song is instantly catchy. The hundreds of extras waving at the carriage, throwing flowers and balloons... the children dancing. Everything wonderfully filmed, timed and choreographed. There is a genuine joy in it that will make you feel like a child and smile.

This sequence catches the spirit of the film, but YOU ARE GETTING IT ALL WRONG IF YOU THINK THIS IS THE ONLY PART WORTH SEEING. The film is a wonderfully funny comedy to be compared with a masterpiece like "To be or not to be". In fact my rating is 10.

Films just DON'T GET ANY BETTER.

Sorry if I sound too enthusiastic, but I was just amazed. Don't miss it. It's really special.
