Storyline

The story is set in 1954. After their flight from East Prussia following WW II, the orphaned sisters Angela, Barbara (nicknamed Dick) and Brigitte (Dalli) have settled with their grandmother Jantzen near Eutin in Schleswig-Holstein. The Jantzens have been owning the 18th century manor house "Immenhof" for over a 100 years, breeding and selling ponies. Only recently, Jochen von Roth has returned from POW camp and is now trying to establish a stud farm in the old forester's house about 5 kilometers from the manor house. Both Oma Jantzen and von Roth are struggling with finances. Owing to debt, Jantzen may have to face the auctioning off of all her possessions. Into this situation arrives Ethelbert, the sisters' posh cousin from the big city (we never learn which). He is making quite a fool of himself in his red and white riding dress, falling off ponies and into traps, but Dick feels drawn to him nevertheless. Romance is also blossoming between Angela and Jochen von Roth. Helped along ... Written by emkarpf

JOLLY PART 1 OF THE IMMENHOF SERIES
23 October 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Every genre has its own classics. This is part 1 of the so-called "Immenhof series", a cult "Happy holiday in the Heimat" series with 4 (!) sequels. This first part is by far the best with a decent script and attentive direction by Wolfgang Schleif.

Do not expect too much of the story. It has the standard ingredients like the the arrogant city boy getting his come-uppance on the pony range and the financial trouble the owner of the range is in. But the film has a jolly atmosphere, nice scenery and a cast who has fun. Cast include the young Heidi Brühl and the bit older Angelika Meisner (my favourite young girl of the 50's German cinema),who are both fine to watch. The older generation is represented by good routinists Margarete Haacke and Paul Henckels.

The film (and its 4 sequels) can now be seen with the original colours restored.
