Storyline

Juliane Thomas is an ambitious but unemployed young writer. After breaking up with her lover she works at a dentist friend to make ends meet. One day she instantly falls in love with one of the patients (Jean Berner) and promptly writes a movie script about the encounter in which she projects her own fantasies about how things will turn out eventually. By coincidence this movie script is picked up by a film director who happens to be Berner's closest friend and from then on things become very complicated...

Unusual Romance, Holds Up Well Today
31 January 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

An unusual romantic movie. Lilo Pulver plays an independent (for its time) dental assistant and hopeful scriptwriter who one day encounters the man of her dreams. Or perhaps she does not. Or perhaps she does.

The film has dated much less badly than other romantic comedies from this era. Amongst other reasons is that the central characters are not meant to be perfect, not even perfect for each other, and this adds a touch of realism that is very refreshing. The cast is excellent, in both supporting and leading roles - the leads are not completely overwhelmed by the notorious scene stealers Rudolf Platte and Werner Finck.
