Marius Goring and Maria Schell give intense performances in this poignant romantic drama set in Nazi-occupied Belgium. Based on Noelle Henry's novel "Je ne suis pas une heroine", So Little Time's love story between a young Belgian woman and an older German officer proved highly controversial on its release in 1952, ensuring that it has never been released on home video until now. Thought lost forever, this wonderful film is featured here in a brand-new digital transfer, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
When war clouds burst over Europe for the second time in a generation, the Belgians again suffer the humiliation of occupation; Madam de Malvines and her daughter Nicole find their chateau outside Brussels partially requisitioned by Colonel von Hohensee, the local German commander. Despite their initial hostility, however, Nicole and Hohensee find they have something in common: a love of music. Nicole eventually begins to see Hohensee as an artist first and a soldier second and comes to realize that she is hopelessly in love with him and that he, too, deeply loves her...
