Jean Paul Belmondo for a few seconds
18 March 2014 | by discount1957See all my reviews

There seem to have been many difficulties in restoring this film (on the DVD-cover they say it lasted two years, because the complete negative was annihilated in 1990).

The result may be interesting, if you like to see some shots of the Riviera in the year 1961. Otherwise the film is not very remarkable, apart from the fact that Jean Paul Belmondo appears in it, but only for a few seconds (you have to watch out for him), during a car race with mini-motorcars (the participants are not professionals, but tourists in a kind of playground).

The film is a love story in the style of those times, involving a middle-aged businessman (Wolfgang Preiss) from Hamburg (Hamburg in 1961 is also seen in a short sequence), and his young wife (Ulla Jacobsson) and a young writer (Hartmut Reck) whom she meets at the Riviera. There is also a wealthy Greek yacht-owner(a la Onassis, played by Walter Rilla) in front of the Riviera coast, with whom her husband wants to get in business contact. - The Riviera and a yacht in front of it was an almost-cliché ultimate dream scenery in Germany at that time.

I don't like to state that any film is generally 'uninteresting'(as professional critics may have to do), because this depends entirely on each viewer's individual web of associations while watching it. Therefore, I don't say such a thing about this one... by the way: I've seen one or two more interesting films by the same director Wolfgang Becker, in German sceneries of those times (Example: 'Kein Engel ist so rein' from 1959).
