Watch it from an ironic distance...
20 November 2005 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

... and you'll probably love it! *g* Austrian actor Peter Weck (quite famous in this country) plays a child psychologist who is offered a job on a castle in Tyrol. There is a catch to it, though: The castle belongs to an eccentric American lady, who thinks that only a father can do this job properly. Dr. Burger (Peter Weck) has no children. In comes a Danish girl called Rena (Gitte Haenning), helping Dr. Burger by pretending that she is his daughter and singing some weird songs like "Die kleinen Mädchen haben brav zu sein" ("Small girls have to be good"). That is the basis for a lot of confusions, including a totally illogical spanking scene where Burger and Rena keep pretending as if they were father and daughter, although they are alone in a room.

If you watch this film from a serious point of view, expecting some kind of sophisticated entertainment, you will surely be disappointed or even shocked by its primitiveness. But if you lean back and watch it with loving sarcasm, you will enjoy it!!
