Storyline

Two musicians, Hans and Peter, are out of work. They make regular visits to the booking agent, but there's no work. After several false starts, they are desperate, and when they hear that an all-woman band, the Alpine Violets, have been let down and are desperate for two female musicians, they know that fate is knocking for them.

Inspiration for a great movie
2 July 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

A good film - but a rarity, where the film it inspired is better than the original. (But when the "remake" is directed by Billy Wilder and has a cast of Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon, how could the original be as good?) Yet, this film is very enjoyable in its own right - including the main song ("ja, nein, ja, nein, ja") performed in many different styles....
