A nifty little whodunit, this film introduced the very popular and powerful melancholic waltz hit "Unter den Tausend Laterne" (Under thousand lanterns) by Michael Jary, which gave the film its unofficial title - the actual name in the opening credits is "Die Stimme des Anderen" (The voice of Another). This picture captures the mood of "European film noir" most perfectly, the cast is good and the dialog plausible. The plot: a young primadonna at a musical comedy stumbles upon murder - or is it murder? - and soon has to choose whether to blame the man she loves or to take the blame herself. Definitely worth a watch as moody yet slow moving crime story with some good music and singing. Fortunately no comedy involved to spoil the feeling of constant sadness and depression.
