| Nice love-drama, not as funny as films in the years after
A nice movie from the "pre-entertaining" era in Austria. A bit over exaggerated in dramaturgy, but overall a very nice flick. Seeing some users rating it at one here at IMDb really is a weird choice, because there are much worse films out there. It boosts a plausible hero (Ambros), and a good and attractive villain (Crispin). As well as quite beautiful and very talented Austrian actresses of that time in the female leading parts. Marianne Hold was a really attractive woman and Ingeborg Schöner was on of those pretty girls (later casted in funny, romantic movies - cannot remember seeing here in a lot of drama's like this one, though).

Austria had it's movie peek until the beginning of the 70's. This movie is more a love drama than the more happier and a lot funnier Austrian movies in the years after. It boosts traditional values and there's also the occasional annoying little boy who pulls on strings story-wise.

A nice appearance of the young Herbert Fux can also be seen, he is the co-worker of the hero Ambros. Already showing his potential ;) A 7 out of 10. Though I wanted to give a 6 first.
