Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
A wooden, routine satire about love, sex, and a fascination with Americans, Die Halbzarte features an eccentric Austrian family who come up with a novel idea for making money. They decide to collectively write a sexy play about a young American that because of its content, is sure to become popular and sell out to packed houses. The innocent teen daughter in the family is involved in the project which suddenly becomes complicated when an American buyer gets interested in who wrote the play. This leads to romance for the pure-hearted daughter, whose own experiences in that area in no way match those of the play's hero.
