a film about a May-December romance between an ice-cream parlor owner, the luscious Renee, and a German officer
18 August 2006 | by (Honolulu, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the now defunct "Fabulous" Fox theater in Venice, California when it was released. I recall the original title in German was Der Anschluß, Der Anschluss, Connection, the term for Hitler's annexation of Austria in 1938. It seemed an appropriate title, since Hitler's incursion was repeated in Czechoslovakia and then in Holland, which Hitler invaded on the pretext of reunification of all Germanic peoples.

Can someone corroborate this title or was it my own imagination? Also, could a plot line be inserted? I really liked the film and Bruno Ganz' portrayal of the German officer was quite sympathetic, humanizing the German military man. (He also strikingly resembled my own father, a half-Swabian, half-Scottish Canadian, who served in the U.S. army after ROTC training at Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he got his degree during the '30's while still a Canadian citizen. He served in Korea and died in 1981 after retiring from the military.
