well this is the last Sirk movie 2 see clearly not at his peak but shows where some of those sirkian touches come from
A German movie about a Swedish woman set in Puerto Rico...the premise had me intrigued. Zarah Leander's character is on vacation in Puerto Rico and meets a nobleman. Just as the boat to Sweden is about to leave, she changes her mind about going back. She decides to stay and marries the guy. The movie suddenly fast forwards ten years - they have a kid now and the beautiful tropical island that she was so captivated with has become a living hell. Her husband turns out to be a jerk who is suppressing news of an epidemic Puerto Rican flu because he doesn't want the country's tourism to suffer, and she is homesick for her native Sweden. The movie is engrossing all the way to the ironic twist ending.
