Storyline

A young American violinist is betting with his European organisor that he will marry the tenth girl he meets the next day within 2 months. If he fails, he looses his Stradivari, if he wins he will get $30,000, but he falls for her roommate. To be near to her, he enrolls under a false name at the local conservatory of music. To get the $30,000 to get his violin back, he agrees to do a concert tour, starting at the local town, but he refuses to let the conservatory's director conduct and wants one of his co-students, but the director won't allow the orchestra to play under another conductor. Now the problem is to get an orchestra within a few days.... Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

Sirk meets Ophuls
17 July 2006 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

this is supposed to be a Douglas Sirk film (he directed under pseudo name), and the dialogue was done by wonderful Jacques Natansen who wrote scripts for Ophuls's La Rondo and Le Plaisir (adaptation/dialogue), and Lola Montes (dialogue). It's a rare gem that Dirk meets Ophuls (the two directors relationship I always found curious, though totally different, another interesting comparison is Reckless Moment and There's Always Tomorrow) in a most unexpected way. I would really, really want to see it again (I saw it in Tokyo last year when it was shown as part of FILMEX festival). Please release this wonderful film on DVD!
