Storyline

The last day of a vacation at the sea, Thomas Ritter met two women: the shy and warm hearted Sabine and the rich Melanie. He settled with Melanie, who could help him with his career as a composer - but came to regret it much when she annoyed him with her unfounded jealousy and suicide threats during all the years of their marriage. When he finally overcomes his scruples and seeks refuge with Sabine, who he kept a friendship to, Melanie is found dead the next day, and it's arranged in a way that suggests Thomas as her murderer...

Elegant movie, very good Lilli Palmer!
2 June 2004 | by haddockSee all my reviews

Although this is a very elegant movie, I have to recommend the "original" LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN, with Gene Tierney. This one refers to a Novel by another writer, but obviously the story es exactly the same, not only similar. The movies are according to the production countries: Leave Her to Heaven with stunning Technicolor, dramatic, impulsive, bigger than life - the German remake Teufel in Seide more quiet, contemplative, closer to real life (at least a little...). Lilli Palmer is excellent, giving the perfect fragile, jealous, manic vamp - and probably she is the main reason to recommend this movie! Her eruptions are really big drama! And you do not know if you should have mercy with the poor ill-minded woman or if you should hate her for being so selfish.
