This romantic comedy pairs Romy Schneider with French star Henry Vidal, and they make quite a sweet couple in this love story. Schneider plays Vidal's guardian angel who tries to convince him not to marry his rich but mean fiance, but rather fall in love with a stewardess who is secretly in love with him. Things are beginning to become complicated when Schneider herself is robbed of her angelic powers and seems to fail in her mission. This is a sometimes very funny, sometimes even thoughtful comedy with a sweet performance by Schneider, but it has it's lengths. Especially the scenes with Vidal's fiance are mostly a waste of time, yet are they almost compensated by the beautiful landscape you can see. Supporting actors add to the fun, such as Margarethe Hagen as Chief Angel. A funny comedy typically of the era, still worth watching today.
