a sparkling romantic comedy in sparkling wine business
All these people drinking and boozing sparkling wine all the time in the picturesque Rhineland Palatine is very joyful. A young man will inherit the family wine production if he doesn't drink any alcohol for several weeks, a terrible situation. And he falls in love with his main wine competitor. It is so funny from beginning to end, with a strong rhythm and fast edting (which is seldom the case in Ophüls movies). And there is one splendid camera movement during the heritage sequence. Not an Ophüls masterpiece, but a complete controlled comedy you won't forget.
