A remake of Murnau's masterwork.
26 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Remakes have always existed,even if they were not so trendy fifty years ago.This is a good example (but not a very good remake,by a long shot). Murnau's porter has become a maître d'hôtel ,why not? The problem lies in the fact that he is not played by Emil Jannings this time ,and is almost completely overshadowed by young charming Romy Schneider.Nothing is left from Murnau' s genius,but the audience can appreciate this little story ,closer to a fairy tale than to German expressionism.(The last lines say :"they got married,and they had many children").Romy Schneider was to become Germany's biggest phenomenon of the second half of the fifties ,with the contemporary Sissi saga.
