Ich bei Tag und du bei Nacht (1932)

A nightclub waiter and a manicurist share the small apartment room. Though they share the closet, the furniture, even sleep in the same bed, they have never met. Why? He has the room during the day and she the night. They hate each other and complain about other’s belongings in their hair all the time. The story gets complicated when they do meet each other and fall in love, without knowing who they are…. Located somewhere between “Lonesome (1929)” and “The Shop Around The Corner (1940)”, this UFA production is a sheer delight. Very smooth plot handling, nice art production …
