Storyline

Maraczek's Parfumerie is the setting for this romantic musical about the many entanglements of love. Georg Nowack and his co-workers lead quietly dreary lives as sales assistants in a little boutique in Budapest. That is until Amalia Balash shows up, asking for a job. As soon as she is hired, through no fault of her own, tensions begin to mount inside the store. Just as Georg and Amalia come to hate each other passionately, Georg discovers that Amalia is his secret pen-pal with whom he exchanges "Dear Friend" letters. How can they reconcile their simultaneous love and hate for each other? Written by Anonymous

Excellent!

I saw this musical on TV back in 1979 as a teenager and never forgot it! PBS showed it for about 3 three years straight during the Christmas season, then stopped airing it around 1982. I searched for 20 years to find a copy, but I could barely find any press on it, let alone a copy! I was finally able to get a copy a couple of years ago and it was as good as I remembered. I hoped it's released soon... It's a musical version of "Shop Around the Corner" (which was the precursor of "You Have Mail") starring Robin Ellis of Poldark fame as Mr. Novack (James Stewart's part in Shop Around the Corner) and Gemma Craven as Amalia Balash (the Margaret Sullavan part in SATC). It takes place for the most part in a 'parfumerie' called Maraczeks, in 1930's Budapest. Mr. Novack is the Head clerk, and fellow employees include Mr. Sipos, an older sort of milquetoast fellow with a wife & family, Ilona, a comely lady who's been around (if you know what I mean), Mr. Kodaly, a playboy, and the owner, Mr. Maraczek. Another employee has left because she's expecting. They're one short, but business is slow so Mr. Maraczek doesn't want to hire someone to replace her. Amalia comes in one day looking for a job and gets hired by Mr. Maraczek after helping him win a bet against Mr.Novack. Unbeknowst to each other, Amalia & Mr. Novack have been communicating by mail, lonely hearts club style. Although in their letters to each other, they're in tune and are very interested in each other, at the shop they dislike each other and fight all the time. If you're familiar with the premise of these types of movies, you can well guess the goings on that come next. While this version omits a couple of songs from the Broadway musical, and vocally the adorable Gemma is no Barbara Cook(who created the role on Broadway)

  • this is a very enchanting movie! Great music, good performances, a


quaint story, funny & romantic, all in all, a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours....
