Storyline

"Die Fledermaus" (The Bat) is the pseudonym adopted by Dr Falke. Floating on the buoyant waltzes of Strauss, this Viennese romp is sure to please. Disguises, tricks and every kind of deception combine to reveal a would-be cheat in hot pursuit of his own wife, much to his chagrin. Silly, charming, always entertaining, always fun. This is a film version of "Die Fledermaus" set in post-war Vienna with the main protagonists of Dr Falke represented by the 3 occupying powers. This is NOT just a film of a staged production but a truly filmic version of the operetta. Written by Steve Crook <steve@brainstorm.co.uk>

Wonderfully frothy. Quite clever. Newly relevant with our occupation of Iraq.
19 April 2003 | by (Port Angeles, WA) – See all my reviews

We are big champagne fans and this movie was sponsored by a big French champagne outfit and it couldn't have been more appropriate. The post WWII Vienna setting was marvelously bubbly and clever. Where better to set such an international tale of deception and decadence.

With the recent US occupation of Iraq, this film may be newly relevant. After all,Oh ... Rosalinda! was a plea for an end to the occupation of Austria. The party was over in the mid50s. In another ten years, perhaps, there might be a wonderful remake set in Bagdad.
