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.

Great movie - now available on DVD in Germany if you are interested
19 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have loved this movie ever since I was a child when it seemed to be on television regularly in the 60s and 70s. It was also my mother's favourite film and I once arranged for it to be shown at the British Film Institute in London as a birthday gift for her.

However, just wanted to tell people that it is now available on DVD in Germany. Unfortunately only a dubbed version (with no subtitles) but for someone like me who was desperate to see it again - it was better than nothing. I have absolutely no idea why this film has not been made more available within the UK, on video, or on television where it not been shown to my knowledge within the last 20 years. Once again I have loved this moving love story which given the subject matter of the film could only end the way it does. Also, it is the only film I have seen where Marius Goring was sexy!!
