utterly charming UFA comedy
6 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is a highly amusing musical comedy with romance and crime elements. In spite of being made in 1938, it is more reminiscent, in style, contents, and setting, of earlier Weimar Republic movies. The music, and the revue numbers, are excellent; the criminals and especially the detective seem just funny today, but that adds to the charm. The hero, the naive flutist Niels Korff, is played by Hans Rühmann, the most popular comedy actor for such roles of the UFA and one of the most beloved German screen actors at all. How good he is can be seen by the fact that he has an adorable small dog who nevertheless doesn't steal the show. Some of the settings (Dutch beach, Hotel interior) are quite lovely time-pieces as well. A thoroughly enjoyable movie, but because of the quality of the voices, it must be seen in the original German.
