Summary:Working at Germany's famed UFA Studios under the very noses of the Nazi authorities that would later force him into Hollywood exile and eminence, Sirk transformed a glossy musical vehicle for UFA's "new Garbo" into a dark and intimate anti-colonial melodrama. Desperate to escape the "cold Swedish minds" of her homeland, beautiful Astree falls under the enchanting spell of the Caribbean love serenade La habanera and into the arms of Puerto Rican land baron Don Pedro de Avila. But ten years later, when Astree's old flame arrives in Puerto Rico, all is far from heavenly.
