Minor classic
29 December 1999 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

When I recently zapped into this film I was for some reason hooked. I had seen it many years ago and in my memory it was an okay film but now I must admit it is nearly perfect. Heinz Ruehmann plays the patriarch German Professor with a family of 12 kids. They love and adore and fear him like a father these days will never know. The moral crisis comes when he or rather his daughter Atlanta inherits a house in Montevideo. His sister whom he had forced into exile because she was a "fallen" women had made her fortune. As it turns out by becoming a famous singer. But when they come to collect the money all appearance seems to suggest that the fortune was made by some less accepted profession. It now turns out that they will only inherit if some member of the family will also become an unmarried mother. Wonderful acting by Ruehmann when he tries to get the idea across to the fiancé of his daughter never directly speaking but rather using incredibly funny metaphors. A pure delight especially when it could turn out into something embarrassing at every moment which it never does. The solution to the crisis is rather silly but acceptable.
