This is the war and everybody in Germany should beware : the enemy is listening. One family in particular had better be even more careful than the average citizen of the Reich : the Kettwigs. Indeed they own an armament factory and their engineers, technicians, workers and of course themselves belong to a highly sensitive sector. They are under the constant scrutiny of those who want to get hold of the secret weapons devised in the plant, notably of a wire which, when attached to a balloon, may become the most effective anti-aircraft ever. For sure, they should distrust everybody. Isn't Nolte, the waiter, an enemy agent? Should young Bernd Kettwig allow himself to be seduced by this pretty woman ? As for Bernd's secretary, is she right when she lets this handsome man woo her? Written by Guy Bellinger

They - us - ours - enemy - - -

A really interesting view on things back then when England was the enemy. It's a bit confusing to watch - you might get it wrong, who exactly should you be rooting for! But make no mistake: it's the English villain, an industrial spy, who is bad, as are those who work with him! There are some very beautiful actresses and actors, very elegant dresses and a rather lovely little song (in French). It gives a very international feeling, since it's not only in German, but by bits English and French are spoken. I watched a copy (a very bad one) one stormy night, and it was tremendously entertaining. You'll be able to find this DVD when you browse the net carefully.
