Storyline

A reporter is assigned a then-and-now piece on a 50-year old photospread of three society beauties. One of them, Lady Alice Munroe, now the widowed Grafin von Holzendorf, has agreed to be interviewed. A few questions set the Grafin's daughter, Connie, thinking about her past, and she sets off for her fatherland, now that the Berlin wall is down, to find out where she comes from. But what she finds out may destroy her relationship with her mother. Written by Kathy Li

Wonderful rarely seen gem
29 December 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Wendy Hiller is one of my all time favourite actresses and in this she shines as an aging countess interviewed for a then-and-now piece in a magazine. Her daughter, Konstanze, played by Zoe Wannamaker, urges her to revisit her dead husband's home in Germany where Konstanze was born. Alice refuses but Konnie goes anyway and a whole chestload of secrets tumbles out. Never sentimental, the film reflects a rare adult glimpse at a mother and daughter relationship. This should be shown more often, it is a true delight. 9 out of 10.
