Sweet,sweeter,the sweetest
This was the first "Heimatfilm" ever to be produced..."Grün ist die Heide" and many,many others followed,and they were more than just popular in the 50ies in Germany:It was the time short after World War II,and everyone just wanted to forget what happened - and so they didn't like movies that showed real problems of the world,but they loved "Heimatfilme",for they were pure "Kitsch" and showed a sweet,idyllic world far from reality...a simple love story around a pretty young man and a pretty young woman,either some comic or melodramatic elements,and beautiful shootings of the nature,undestroyed and wonderful-that's the ingredients for a good Heimatfilm,and that receipe always worked! Sonja Ziemann and Rudolf Prack (although he was more than 20 years older than her) were the dream-pair of the German Heimatfilm since this movie.She plays a girl from the black forest,who falls in love with a painter,and after some entanglement they find together at a national festival where everybody is happy,sings songs and wears historical black forest costumes. Today,Heimatfilme are just scorned. But it wasn't that bad at all...you have to accept your movie-past.Those movies were simple,but they spoke to the hearts of the people:the producers knew what the people wanted! It is also a part of movie history,and also a part of culture: That were the 50ies!!!
