Very nice German romantic movie.

(unsure, watched the movie years ago; I initially rated it with 9 points but lowered the rating years later due to my new stricter rating system.)

A film noir about an alcoholic. Ray Milland was very convincing in his role and deservedly won the Academy Award.

I liked Humphrey Bogart's performance and the cinematography is great. The story was not so interesting, too many dialogues. I expected more of this movie. In addition the soundtrack of the German dubbed version was annoying (Jazz music from the 60s - it destroyed some of the atmosphere) but it's not the fault of the original movie so I don't include it in my rating.
