Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Drei Tage Liebe (Three Days' Love) was based on a novel by Joe Lederer. Kaethe Dorsch plays a servant girl who falls for a handsome moving man, portrayed by Hans Albers. After three days of Heaven, hero and heroine are forced to come back down to earth. Albers tries to be blasé about their possible parting, but Dorsch cries, and cries, and cries. Reviewers in 1931 felt that Drei Tage Liebe substituted bathos for pathos, but singled out the dependable Hans Albers as delivering the best performance. The film is chock-full of 1930s Berlin slang, which might prove interesting to contemporary dialecticians.
