Plot Outline:

A former concert pianist, Stefan Brand, plans to flee his Vienna home in order to avoid a duel. Yet a letter from an unknown woman holds the key to his current predicament: through flashbacks we see their interactions, from a young neighbor, to a sudden pregnancy to a older woman willing to leave her family to be with him. Despite having forgotten her time and time again - she has never forgotten him. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

Told almost entirely in flashback, this is a film about love and longing that is permanently tinged with sadness. Although the story itself unfolds in tragic fashion, the film's thematic use of music provides a few bright spots in the melodrama. Sad, but well-executed.
