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... Written by

The title sequence notes that the screenplay was written "with contributions by the director" - the same phrase is used in the title sequence of the film within the film. Actually, one could say that the whole film is about director "Büffel" contributing to Juliane's screenplay. See more »

I would be angry, in the reverse case.
Dr. Jean Berner:
Well, I wouldn't have come here, in the reverse case.

This has been one of my favourite movies as a child, when they were still showing 1950s-movies on TV. I hadn't seen it for almost 20 years when I recently bought the DVD. I was surprised at how fresh it still felt - the dialogue is very witty, the relations of the characters are realistic (even sex is implied - huch! That in the German 50s!), and the recurring references to writing a screenplay and to German movies of the time are very amusing ("You should have a tame deer in it!"). The movie is carried by the brilliant lead actors - there couldn't have been anyone else than Lilo Pulver to play Juliane, and the contrast between Bernhard Wicki and Paul Hubschmid is the perfect analogy to Bueffel and Berner from Barbara Noacks novel. I'm glad I have it on DVD now.
