Storyline

The small and remote Austrian town of Arnstein has built a new landing stage for the Danube steamers to call. First passenger is Helga, a young architecture student who has left her study course. She returns to her foster-mother Therese and is welcomed, but Therese relies on her inn for a living and it's mortgaged to the hilt to Kilian, who threatens to foreclose. Helga uses her feminine charm to get some breathing space. Inevitably Helga quickly finds romantic involvement in the small town, with Fred, and together they borrow furniture and fittings without permission from the unoccupied local castle to liven up the inn. This becomes a major attraction with young people, (cue rock'n'roll music and dancing) and everything looks to be running well until the castle's owner suddenly returns. For a moment things look black ... with Therese still in debt, what will become of them all? Written by Hazel Freeman <hazel@tguk.net>

Sentimental romance in which tradition meets rock'n'roll
14 October 2002 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

Austria was a conservative country in 1957 but there was a need for film makers to appeal to the rock'n'roll oriented youth market and the admiration for America without alienating the traditionalists.

The Lindenwirtin combines all the necessary elements of beautiful homeland, the old way of doing things, a mild but comical bad character who becomes reformed, some rock'n'roll jive, and above all some chaste romantic interest for young and older characters in the screenplay.

Nowadays it is very much of its time ... sentimental, backward looking, with unsubtle characterisations ... so it couldn't be made today ... unless of course it was a soap series.

Well worth watching for a sentimental view of a vanishing way of life.
