Germany in the fall of 1918: Accompanied by the Archduke Karl Maria, Princess Henriette von Battenstein makes an inspection tour of hospitals. During these inspections, she meets Lieutenant Rainer, the former conductor of the State Opera.

A melodramatic love story in a poetic romantism genre. I believe that the best moment in the movie is on the 14th-17th minute, when Prinzessin Henriette von Battenstein (Luise Ullrich) and Franz Rainer (Paul Hubschmid) rehearse music. You can see without a word said, just through the power of music and face expressions how their love sparks and mutual attraction develops.
