... UND DAS IST DIE HAUPTSACHE!? - EINE BALLNACHT

Joe May
DEU 1931
86min
V'08

For just one wild night everything seems possible: The husband longs for a fling with young Pixi who is so clearly infatuated with him, the wife (Nora Gregor) falls prey to the charms of a fraud who calls himself a Prince. In his hotel room she almost loses more than just her jewellery. In the end nothing has happened, but that does not mean a happy ending. The question is yet to be answered: What is it that really matters? Joe May, a pioneer of the german talkie, turns this drama about love, sex, deceit and infidelity into a showcase for the splendid work of Otto Kantureks «unchained» camera.
