Special: Carmen Cartellieri

Ein Wiener Musikantenmädel

Josef Berger
AUT, DEU 1928
66 min

Anton Gabler and his daughter Franzi earn their bread and butter as musicians. One night the leader of a jazz band spots Franzi and soon she is the crowd’s favorite. Not impressed by the clumsy flirtation of Prince Korsakoff she is in love with the artist Fritz. But it’s a long way until they can be together: Fritz also works as a cashier and after a raid he gets nursed by Countess Ellen van Bergen. She’s not acting selfless and tries everything to bind him to herself. The embodiment of van Bergen, the symbiosis of self-confidence, elegance, emotion, seduction and manipulative behavior is no challenge for Carmen Cartellieri. (Kristina Höch)
