Loved this movie. It really sneaked up on me and I loved the ending most of all.
8 February 2000 | by (Lafayette, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

Such a great study of human relationships in a humorous and touching way. Great pathos. I saw this movie about 2 years ago on American television during the day. It captivated me and I have been trying to find out more about it ever since. I even came to London last year (not to search for the film) and hoped to find someone who might know of it. But I didn't even know the title! I just found out through a television host of daytime movies here in California. I really need to see it again so I can remember more. It's been a long time but I have never forgotten the impact it had on me. I particularly loved the relationship between Peter and Frau Messner at the end. I absolutely loved it! Anybody else?
