Café Paradis (1950)

»You shall never believe in anything«

The didactic, inept, slightly awkward intro is followed by a long flashback depicting social pressure and the dangers of alcohol in a very oldfashioned, careful, matter-of-factly way.

Rather crass but also touching in its slow build-up, heavy use of clichés, and unabashed sentimentality. Some interesting parts, but ultimately not enough for my book of class or drinking issues.

  1. No, this was generally disappointing. Ib Schoenberg is good though.

  2. Can’t even say I’m disappointed, as I had no idea about what to expect. Schoenberg definitely has the most interesting part, and fleshes his character out with great body language and facial expression.
