Storyline

Austrian count von Warthenberg is a grumpy stud-farm-recluse since his wife's death. Ths summer, his old lover Susanne Weiden arrives, hoping for a 'fat' marriage and inheritance. But his daughter Hanna made other plan with secret lover Michael, teacher of Vienna's world-famous Wiener Sängerknaben, who will spend their Alpine countryside holiday in the village. Among them is adolescent Michael 'Mikel', son of the count's estranged elder daughter Maria. The plan is to make grandpa and knave meet and bond before their blood-ties are revealed.

EXCESSIVELY SENTIMENTAL HEIMATFILM
11 July 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The usual one-dimensional life in the Heimat is this time centered around the shrill voices of the Viennese Boys Choir without no one around to keep them from singing, on the contrary. The story is as simple and exciting as the snow on the mountains and excessively sentimental. Direction and acting are poor. There is, however, one scene (the father talking about his horse with his daughter's lover, who thinks that the father is talking about his fiancee) that is side splitting funny; maybe Willy Birgel thought: Let's do at least one scene worthwhile.
