Queen of Nazi Germany's Cinema in her best-remembered role
16 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Zarah Leander, Swedish Import to the German Cinema of the 1930s & 40s, is best known for her stunning beauty and her deep singing voice, both of which would light up a movie screen. Often cast in the role of a suffering, unappreciated woman, this film could be her lifetime signature performance.

Mistreated by her lover, she nonetheless takes the blame for his criminal activity, accepting a prison sentence, in dim hopes of reuniting with the scoundrel years later. A twist of fate allows her to leave prison, but of course at a price. The predictable plot moves along, including 2 memorable songs, the heartbreaking "Ich steh' I'm Regen" and the up-tempo "Yes, Sir!", both becoming Leander trademarks.

Like Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis and other Classic Cinema Divas, Zarah Leander has achieved cult status. "Zu neuen Ufern" would be the first film to be mentioned by any fan. Enjoy the drama, and enjoy the queen...the Drama Queen of Old German Cinema at her best!
