The Munich school at which the movie was made is simply fantastic! It shows the the state of the art concerning architecture in the late 50s in Germany. The film itself? Well, it would have been useful for the director to decide between light comedy and deep drama. To start with comedy and then turning into drama is no problem, but to force the situation to death and despair, and then turning from one minute to the other to really dull slapstick, without explanation, without resolving the drama, that's simply bad! So you have lots of unexplained story lines and a plot which slightly remembers of "Tea and Sympathy" with Deborah Kerr (perhaps the perfect "twin" of Ruth Leuwerik in look and attitude), with also ended quite annoying, but at least was a powerful drama. Enjoy the architecture!
