The story is set around 1956, two years later than the first movie. What was menacing then has become bitter truth: The Immenhof has been closed by officials, awaiting auction. In the meantime, Angela has died, so Jochen is now a widower. Oma Jantzen and Angela's younger sisters Dick and Dalli live with him in the forester's house. In order to save the manor house, Dalli has started a "pony circus" with the village children in the barn, while Dick has given up hope of Ethelbert ever returning - he hasn't written in over a year. Little does she know that he is already on the way, bringing his university friend Ralf into the mix. When Ethelbert learns from Dalli that Dick and Ralf are getting much better acquainted than he was bargaining for (we're talking about getting to first name basis here, it's the 1950s), and he also learns of the trouble the Immenhof is in, he secretly gets his rich uncle Pankraz and his beautiful daughter Margot to the forester's house. After a lot of pranks ...Written by
This is part 2 of the so-called "Immenhof series". Although in principal it did not matter much who sat in the director's chair, this part with its already weaker story (than that of part 1) is not helped much by Volker von Collande's uninterested direction. It is a good thing that Fritz Arno Wagner was behind the camera, although he could not prevent that when finally something resembling a plot is starting (with the arrival of Hans Nielsen as the financial saver), the story telling becomes untidy.
The main attraction remain the regulars of the cast: the both attractive Heidi Brühl and Angelika Meissner with their catching acting and both routinists Margarete Haagen and Paul Henckels.
