Telling the May-to-September affair of two doomed lovers (he's dying of one of those movie diseases that do not show) Miss Leuwerik is trying her very best, to breath life into the turgid, ponderous, completely unbelievable going-ons. Alas, all is in vain. From the beginning she is defeated by the inferior material.
Once a star of first magnitude, beating Maria Schell in all popularity polls, Ruth Leuwerik found herself trapped in second-rate features when the 60's dawned. Though her reign was short and did not contain any classic, Miss Leuwerik is still adored and dearly loved by her loyal fans. The prestigious National Film Museum in Berlin honored her with a great, splashy, magnificently staged and costly special in May 2004, which turned out to be a rousing hit with high-brow critics and mass audience alike.
