Beautiful remake in color of the 1936 version.
16 June 2012 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The most interesting part of this movie is, that Paul Richter, here as Graf Dietwald, played in the 1936 black/white version the leading role.

Erich Auer handsome looking guy is playing the leading role in this beautiful filmed "Heimatfilm" from 1953.

This movie was shortly restored and shown on TV and deserve's to be released on DVD or better on Blu-Ray because it looks beautiful, clean and sharp.

What I like in this Drama/Love Story is the German/Austrian language/accent they had in the movies in the 1950s.

During the 1953 version its more often showed on the TV its the 1936 very rare.

Which version is better? Well.. both are very good and made in the best way in their time and both movies are really a must see it.
