Storyline

In Belgium, during World War II, a young music student and her mother are the only ones left of a large family, the men having all been lost in the war against Germany. Their château is partially taken over by the German Military Commandant. The girl, Nicole, has an intense hatred for the Germans and tells the Commandant, Hohensee, so. Whey they discover they have a mutual interest in music, especially the piano, they come to know each other better and fall in love. They know it is an impossible situation - especially the girl who is forced by the underground to steal documents and information from him - and realize their romance can only end in tragedy.

Finding copies of So Little Time
23 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I researched this site to try to find out if a DVD (restored?) existing of this haunting film and discovered from the comments of viewers that many are also endeavoring to just merely obtain any copy of the film which apparently has gone off the market. I am fortunate apparently to have had a VHS copy I taped from a PBS showing a long time. I have transferred the same to DVD with good success. Perhaps copies could be obtained from PBS New Hampshire or Vermont TV stations where I think mine originated. I would gladly forward a copy of recording to interested persons for a small fee to cover DVD and shipping costs but I'm afraid that is illegal.
