Storyline

Peter Munk, a poor charcoal burner, lives with his mother in The Black Forest. Poverty prevents him from marrying Lisbeth, the girl he loves. When he comes across the Little Glass Man, the good spirit of the forest, the young man asks him for assistance. His wish is granted and he becomes rich. But the fool soon loses all his money after gambling at the inn. In desperation, he asks Dutch Michael, the evil spirit of the forest, to help him to become rich again. The mean giant agrees and gives Peter all the riches in the world, but on one condition: the young man will exchange his heart for a cold stone. He can now marry Lisbeth but can a heart of ice make you and the others happy...? Written by Guy Bellinger

THE COLD HEART was one of the first German color films after war
5 June 2008 | by (Bergisch Gladbach, Germany) – See all my reviews

THE COLD HEART (DAS KALTE HERZ) was the first color feature after war in East Germany. At the same time (1950) SCHWARZWALDMÄDEL (GIRL OF BLACK FOREST) was also produced in color in Western Berlin and West Germany. Both films were photographed on Agfacolor negative film stock, which was manufactured by the Soviet occupied AGFA film factory in Wolfen, East Germany (later known under the trade mark ORWO). They had been excellent examples for Technicolor's competitor Agfacolor. The cinematographer of THE COLD HEART, Bruno Mondi, was well known for his rich experience with color. So he photographed all color features of the director Veit Harlan, starting with DIE GOLDENE STADT (THE GOLDEN CITY) in 1942, including also the propaganda movie KOLBERG (1944).
