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. When they hear that the band is going to a luxury Alpine hotel to record a gramophone record, they can't wait to get on board. They enlist the help of a friendly makeup artiste and practise their girly body language. After a street test they are sure they pass, so it's back to the agency to volunteer. They pass a quick audition, so it's down to the station for the night train to Ingolstadt, with the rest of the band. They get introduced to all the other girls, who are already in their pyjamas in their sleeping berths. After a lot of giggling and innuendo, fortunately they are in their own compartment for the night. Next morning, the train hasn't yet reached ... Written by Hazel Freeman

Most everything but Valentine's Day & the bullets . . .
12 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Billy Wilder may have said that he only used the premise of this film and one scene in SOME LIKE IT HOT, but aside from the absence of gangsters in the original and women who seem to catch on a lot quicker to what's going on, I didn't see many dissimilarities.

Both films are a lot of fun - although back to back viewings will be problematic for most unless they're someplace that does excellent scheduling of foreign films. I doubt you'll find this one in any recorded form easily.
