Storyline

An Austrian girl is forced to marry for the sake of the family, rather than for love, which causes her great pain when the man she truly loves commits suicide, rather than see her married to another. Her life takes another turn for the worse when the Nazis rise to power and her Jewish ancestry creates problems. The woman takes steps to do right by herself after vowing to never allow someone else to determine her fate.

Sentimental, moving film about a family in Vienna
12 August 1999 | by beebee-4See all my reviews

The story of a wealthy family in Vienna from the end of the Austrian Empire through the Nazi's and WWII. Somewhat old fashioned and it starts a little slowly, but wonderfully made and very moving. Cast is mostly British but includes some real Austrians such as Maria Schell and Oskar Werner. Perhaps I am somewhat biased because I have always been interested in "old Vienna" but I found it fascinating.
