Hilarious, with great comical acting
8 October 2004 | by jilkaSee all my reviews

Admittedly, most typical German-language comedies or romances from the 50s or early 60s are rather unrealistic, kitschy and just plain dumb. This one is different though. Yes, it is just a straightforward comedy that won't give you insights into the depths of human behavior or the course of the world, but it does have a smart plot idea, fantastic comical acting from the great Liselotte Pulver, Helmut Schmid (her real-life husband I believe), Dietmar Schönherr and Peter Vogel (deliciously slimy), and also several quite witty puns and linguistic jokes. Even the 3 or 4 songs - which usually are just horrible in German-language films from this period - have a certain self-irony that makes them bearable. As I am writing this the film has received an average rating of only 5.1 (29 votes). I think it is vastly underrated, so I'm giving it a 10 ...
