Strange Film
30 May 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Otto Kruger plays a waiter in a Moscow restaurant in 1914.He is able to make a lot of money by using tips received from grateful customers to speculate on the stock market.He keeps his teenage daughter in ignorance of his true occupation,making her believe that he is a wealthy businessman.He gets a guarantee from wealthy business man Walter Rilla, to help him buy the restaurant.However what he doesn't know is that Rilla is romancing his daughter.Matters come to a head when Rilla refuses to honour his promise and the daughter overhears her father's voice.The daughter finds true love with her music teacher and Kruger makes a fortune on the stock market.This is a rather strange film which rather lacks pace and entertainment.At barely over an hour it still seems rather long.
