Moving story about a returning soldier's obsession with a young girl, BUT the film quality is awful. The sound is patchy and scratchy and the visuals are grainy and poorly focused. I've seen much better quality in 1940's movies that have been transferred to DVD.

This is another take on the "Lolita" story ,with more emphasis on the scenery ,which help make this watchable ,apart from the awful grainy and uneven condition of the film.
Rent don't buy!

Like Humbert was poisoned by the tormenting temptation of Lolita, so too Herr Paul is bewitched by this nymphet (Katya Berger) drifting fairy-like through the meadows and bathing naked in the river. Herr Paul is an injured war veteran, contemplating suicide, but his outlook on life is refocused as he befriends the little girl, and as he seeks out her little lips.
The film is slow-paced, but that adds to the atmosphere. As other reviewers have mentioned, the dated DVD is grainy. Mine was an edited version. On U-tube I have seen other unedited versions containing more sensuous & contraversial scenes.
This is one of a string of films depicting love affairs betwen a child and an older man (such as Lolita, Pretty Baby, Sundays & Cybele) that are reviewed in Puberty & First Love: Children in Films: 6 and Physical & Sexual Abuse (Children in Films)
Recommended if you are intrigued by the entrapment of child-adult relationships.

This film was tastefully done. Well acted although the voiceover for me did not match the charactors, especially miss bergers.
The usual story of injured man returning home from the horrors of war only to fall in love with a beautifull young girl. You must remember that this was filmed in 1978 as the sound track and dubbing tells throughout the film.

The artful nude scenes of Katya Berger are missing, which is a great shame,as they were sensual rather than sexual. The picture quality is awful. The sound quality just as bad.

Rubbish quality, wasn't aware this dubbed version was edited. Tried to return it but, good luck with that one :( Tried to cancel another order, no luck there either.

The movie is about an middle age man who returns from War wounded. He meets and falls in love with a 12 year old girl (played by Katya Berger). Please be aware that the movie here is the edited version, (there are 3 versions of the movie), but the one here still contains many provocative nude scenes with the girl including full nudity. I noticed the title of the movie listed in an Amazon.com Kindle book titled THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO GIRLS IN COMING OF AGE MOVIES 2013 by Carl Wo. which lists 600 movies which truly fit the Coming Of Age genre. I would recoommend Pretty Baby 1978 Starring Brooke Shields, and Beau Pere (1981.
