FIRST CLASS ENTERTAINMENT
5 April 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The classic German screwball comedy that is a free remake of It Happened One Night. But Paul Martin himself was the first to admit that he never fully captured the right atmosphere. Be that as it may, Glückskinder is first class entertainment, is very well directed and has brilliant and witty dialogue by Curt Goetz. The cinematography is very good and Paul Martin's use of panning and traveling is outstanding. Furthermore there are a couple of nice and silly songs and dances to finish the film off.

As to the cast: Harvey and Fritsch were the dream couple of German 30's cinema (and a good source of income for the UFA) and choosing them as leads was obvious. However, though both are good and charming (as Lilian Harvey always was), neither do not seem totally equiped for the job; here they lack a certain extra to make the viewer completely involved in their relationship. In this they are outdone by Paul Kemp and Oskar Sima, who both had the time of their lives in their parts.

In all literature on this film I never saw mentioned the small part of the judge played by Paul Bildt. Please note this scene: he is brilliant.
