Rather Dull
21 April 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film was produced by the major German film production company UFA in three different language versions.This stars the multi lingual actress Lillian Harvey,playing a Russian ballerina who hides a Finnish activist,Edmond Knight, in part of Finland occupied by the Russians.She is being romances by a Russian officer.They are found together by the officer when he brings a surprise gift.Knight has to leave with the Russian.After a successful performance she is kidnapped by the revolutionaries and interrogated.She had taken a coded message from Knights jacket and given a copy to one of his associates.She is persuaded to leave the villa she is living in which is owned by the Russian officer.The film is then interrupted by scenes of the Finnish mid summer festival.These are brought to an end by sword waving Russian cavalry,who capture many men.Knight is persuaded to attempt the assassination of the Russian officer.This is partly overheard by Harvey.So at the theatre she warns the officer of the danger he is in.He disregards her advice.So he arranges for a platoon of the army to come on stage with rifles and arrest them.Harvey then agrees to go back with the officer if he pardons Knight.Sounds hackneyed well it is.
