Romanze in Moll (1943)
'One is gallant, one makes gifts'
Can't find proper words to praise Helmut Käutner for this piece of art. Intimate and somber, with no political content; just the bird inside the cage, the pearl necklace and the romance in a minor key.
P.S. I feel obliged to read Maupassant 'Les bijoux' now. - 9 days ago
