A Great film!
11 March 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A down-to-earth, realistic description of the 50s like they really were. I was in the army in Germany in the early 60s and a lot of this atmosphere was still present.

Honest, simple movies like this one, with an easy-to-follow theme, are a thing of the past now, with directors packing too much trash into too little time, resulting in hectics with essentially no real message.

And what a collection of stars! A brilliant Freddy Quinn, Brigitta Mira etc. etc., a beautiful Bea Fidler (as always)... I've seen the film several times and am always ready to enjoy it again, tons of erotics but not so much as to burden the film with too much sexuality. A great time warp back to a wonderful era in Germany!
