Vienna, around 1900.  The master baker Streussler’s most ardent wish is to see his daughter Nelly as a student at the university.  With the help of his famous “streusel cake” he succeeds in luring all kinds of helpers for this endeavor into his house.  But Nelly has entirely different plans:  she is in love with the chimney sweep Heinz, the son of a neighbor, with whom Papa Streussler has been fighting for years.  So it’s no wonder then, that the grump confectioner is doing everything he can to break up the relationship.

Wien, um 1900. Der sehnlichste Wunsch des Konditormeisters Streußler ist es, seine Tochter Nelly als Studentin an der Universität zu sehen. Mit Hilfe seines berühmten Streuselkuchens gelingt es ihm zwar, alle erdenklichen Helfer für dieses Unterfangen in sein Haus zu locken – doch Nelly hat ganz andere Pläne: Sie ist in den Schornsteinfeger Heinz verliebt, bei dem es sich wiederum ausgerechnet um den Sohn jenes Nachbarn handelt, mit dem Papa Streußler seit Jahren im Streit liegt. Kein Wunder also, dass der grantige Konditor nichts unversucht lässt, um die Beziehung zu verhindern.

QUALITY (of feature film only):
