FRG 1961. Dir: Ladislao Vajda. 95 min. 35mm
with Heinz Rühmann, Giulia Follina, Annemarie Düringer, Blandine Ebinger, Gustav Knuth
It’s not too often that you see outstanding acting performances by children in movies. Director Ladislao Vajda manages to guide eight-year-old Julia Follina to top form in front of the camera. She plays the daughter of single father Sebastian Schuhmann (Rühmann), who lies to her about a nice life.
