WELL-MEANT BUT ONLY MILDLY ENTERTAINING
Moderately entertaining film about Rumanian refugees in Germany after WW2 and I think a film made to make German audiences aware of the life of refugees and life in refugee camps of which at the time there were many. Well meant but the story concentrates on a well-off refugee while the not so-well off who live in a camp, hardly are given any background. Moreover, for the viewer the intrigue is too obvious and lets the viewer wonder why Hildergard Knef's character is that naïve not to comprehend this from the start. Carl Raddatz plays a police inspector who walks on and off without ever being a really integral part of the story, though with his well-known forbearance he does it well. The film is not helped much by so-so direction and pacing.
