Light comedy of great charm
18 July 2004 | by jandewittSee all my reviews

Surprisingly light and daffy comedy with two great (and greatly underrated) actors in the lead. Hardy Krüger, often wasted in weepy melodramas opposite Maria Schell (who was able to cry on demand and build a nice career on it) is a reckless, charming young man and race-driver (quite unusual for German cinema during the stiff and boring Adenauer Restauration). He is married to lovely Ruth Leuwerik, a statuesque beauty of patrician good looks (Germany's answer to Greer Garson, but a lot more talent, who is a successful artist. Both star show amazing chemistry and the script is sparkling, often risqué, but, in all fairness, sometimes just blabla.

Later the year Miss Leuwerik found her perfect match opposite the wooden Dieter Borsche in the tremendously successful 'Königliche Hoheit' and went on the even greater success in 'Die Trapp Familie'. When the 60's dawned her career had already waned and she went into retirement. Largely forgotten she was rediscovered in 2004 by critics and fans.

A bit long at the end, the pic is worth watching.
