A thrilling tear-jerker with a surprising plot
1 October 2000 | by (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The film Mazurka from Germany, 1935, is a wonderful combination of a -maybe too- sentimental story with a very surprising plot.

The atmosphere is comparable with Rebecca of A. Hitchcock: eventually in the last twenty minutes suddenly everything becomes clear.

The film offers a wonderful view of the way of living in Middle Europe in the '30s. Most actors speak German with an East-European accent which sounds friendlier than average German accent.

I hope this film will become available on DVD. If it does: Purchase it, sit back, enjoy the film and... don't forget to put a box of Kleenex beside you. You'll need it!
