An Austrian version of Romeo and Juliet?
25 August 2003 | by esteban1747See all my reviews

Good looking Delon and Romy Schneider were without any doubt a nice couple in several films, but this one seems to be the most romantic one for both. In fact, it looks like a modified version of famous novel "Romeo and Juliet". Christine (Schneider) felt in love with young officer, Franz Lobheiner (Delon), who at the same time had relationship with a noble old man's wife. The latter did not want anything else than to have love with Lobheiner, who was much younger than her and her husband, but Lobheiner also felt in love with Christine, and at the time he was finishing his relations with the rich old woman, Baronne Lena Eggersdorf, he was discovered by Mr. Eggersdorf, who asked him to accept a fatal duel, where Lobheiner was killed. This was too much for Christine, who knew little or nothing of the former relationship between Lobheiner and Mrs. Eggersdorf, and she finally decided to kill herself in order to meet her loving Franz. It is a modest film with quite simple plot, but nice to see it. The film shows several sites of Vienna and of the Austrian high society of early 20th century.
