Storyline

The last day of a vacation at the sea, Thomas Ritter met two women: the shy and warm hearted Sabine and the rich Melanie. He settled with Melanie, who could help him with his career as a composer - but came to regret it much when she annoyed him with her unfounded jealousy and suicide threats during all the years of their marriage. When he finally overcomes his scruples and seeks refuge with Sabine, who he kept a friendship to, Melanie is found dead the next day, and it's arranged in a way that suggests Thomas as her murderer...

ENTERTAINING BUT MANNERED
23 May 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The fact that this film ever received a prize for best film (Germany 1955) says more about the then situation of the German cinema and the jury than about this film. It is surely not a bad or mediocre film, but also not a prize deserving one. It is a very entertaining and with care made and directed melodrama/crime thriller based on a script with with one major weakness: with its constant flashbacks and dream sequences it is on the verge of mannerism.

The cast is extremely good (and another reason why this melodrama works), but I should have preferred Winnie Markus as best actress over Lili Palmer (an in my view overrated actress): while Markus' acting is still fresh and to the point, Palmer in several scenes overdoes things.
