Storyline

Vera Kemp, heiress of an industrial enterprise, lives in an apparently perfect world. While she doesn't care for big business, her husband Manfred runs the company. However, she learns about his affair with a younger woman and tries to save her marriage. During a vacation in Italy, Manfred and their son Max die in a road accident. Vera nearly despairs of her grief and, even worse, recognizes that her whole life has been a lie. Andreas Wolgast, a former employee, is the only one who supports her fight for the company and against her caballing family... Written by fippi2000

MUDDLED AND NO TENSION
4 September 1999 | by J. SteedSee all my reviews

The best years of the protagonist are not the best time for director Dominik Graf. Probably already knowing that the script with its standard format story was so-so, Graf chooses for a very inapt and out of control style, including the cinematography, that results in a very muddled film without tension; the film never gets off the ground and the story is hard to follow. In the end the viewer is left with quite some loose ends.
