Quotes

Dr. Grunbaum: Last Wednesday, did you steal a woman's fur?
Zani: Yes, sir.
Dr. Grunbaum: What made you do it?
Zani: People shouldn't kill animals... and wear their furs.
Dr. Grunbaum: Unfortunately, there's not a law against that... but there is a law against stealing. What makes you steal things? Did you sell the fur?
Zani: No. I burned it.

A gem!
14 May 1999 | by MarioBSee all my reviews

This rare film is one of the best of the 1930's. The story is very original and the way the director did it is simply amazing! Beautiful and creative piece of work. It's absolutely very unique!
