Sehnsucht 202

Feature Film, AT/DE 1932, 86 min, dOF

In a turbulent comedy of errors, an unemployed shorthand typist and a millionairess in search of investment opportunities run into two dodgy, nearly bankrupt perfume shop owners, who sense a chance to save their business. The Great Depression turns the Viennese flaneurs into entrepreneurs and blurs the borders between the classes.
