Ein Mann geht durch die Wand (1959)

Ein Mann geht durch die Wand (A Man Goes through the Wall), a movie from 1959, starring Heinz Rühmann and Nicole Courcel. I saw it sometime in 1962 or 1963, I was less than twenty and I liked it a lot. I watched it again a couple of days ago. How it looks like now? Well, I also have gotten old, meanwhile. It's a nice comedy, some allusions in it were making sense in 1959, still make sense for someone who remembers the mentality and the issues from 1959. Meanwhile Germany evolved and became a different country with different issues. In 1959 it was still fighting with its past, while trying to adapt.

(Heinz Rühmann)
