In 1938 Berlin the Nazis are consolidating and expanding their power. Gudrun Landgrebe, the wife of a rising young Nazi diplomat, is taking art classes and is struck by the beauty of another student, Mio Takaki, the daughter of the Japanese ambassador. The two women soon become friends and,

before long, lovers. Landgrebe's husband, Kevin McNally, learns of the affair and forbids his wife to see Takaki. Landgrebe doesn't obey her husband though and leaves herself open to blackmail. For a film dealing with illicit passion, this is strangely unaffecting. Nothing indicates the depth of

sexual desire that propels the characters. All of the performances are competent, and the production values indicate a much more lavish film, but the film is a vacuum badly in need of a story to fill it.
