Film Notes

Nora Alsen is a very competent and dedicated family doctor, whose patients never call on her in vain. She is also a renowned feminist, who gives lectures about equal rights for women. Her fiancé Robert Hartung feels neglected by Nora’s unlimited dedication to her work and begins a secret affair with Nelly, a waitress. While Nora is still making plans to marry Robert, Nelly gives birth to his child. As Nelly does not get better, Nora, a qualified gynaecologist, is called on for help. This unexpected confrontation with the truth forces Nora to reconsider her priorities in life. Vera Yureneva (perhaps better known for her stage career) gives a very strong performance in this role, which was specially written by her husband Aleksandr Voznesensky, who was a famous playwright and screenwriter in Russia.
