| QUALITY AMUSEMENT
No more or less than quality entertainment by Wolfgang Staudte, who from the 60's onwards was confined to films like this one: with skill directed amusement that only shows the hand of the master occasionally. This film opens with a scene that reminds of one of his best film: Der Untertan, but it is out of place in this light comedy; was Staudte perhaps being nostalgic?

In this film Staudte is helped especially by delightful Helen Vita, Mario Adorf and Gert Frõbe, who hams it up with a big will. As if Staudte wanted to stress the point that it is all artificial, all outdoor scenes have very obvious, one-dimensional painted sets as background. The film is sometimes innocently piquant, and it has a meaningless but nice story.
