A young female doctor leaves her job at a clinic as she wants to work as a "landärtztin" in a small town. The local people are up for a surprise, as the mayor thought the were getting Dr. Peter Jensen, not Petra. Most of the locals can not yet accept a female doctor. The backward people start a boycott, but the priest of the town has some ideas to make the them trust the doctor. The local veterinary is also standing on the doctor's side, and not only because of her competence. Finally the doctor has to take care of the mayor's daughter giving birth. It's a matter of life and death, but the fate of the doctor is also in the game. Written by
This film is typical for German "Heimatfilm". A harmless and simple plot, a little bit of humor, a little bit of tragedy, some nice pictures of beautiful countryside - and all is ending good. It shows stereotyped ideas of "usual" life in "usual" german countryside - in fact life wasn't that way. About 90% of German films of that time were lean (and ridiculous) entertainment or (in fact also ridiculous) bombastic drama. Simple, harmless and often primitive film making. This film is not better or worse than others of that time - it´s typical for that curios genre "Heimatfilm". Grin at it!
