One could overlook the lack of plot in "Ein Nacht im Paradies," if it had any of the qualities that in the past have made German musical-comedy films refreshing and amusing. But the photography is blurred, the parts overacted, and there is not a waltz during the whole performance.
Miss Anny Ondra, as Monika Boehnicke, a sales girl, scratches her ribs in the various ecstasies of love until the wealthy Americo-German financier is willing to marry her. Walldorf, who is described as a business man, rushes about with his wife alternately trying to pay for clothes that are being repaired, and giving lavish dinners. Monika's idea of paradise is a drunken brawl with much sitting on mirrors and with her mother and father downstairs, weeping.
The only justification for such a film being imported into the country is that Hollywood sends worse to Germany.
