Fortsetzung des Films "Familie Buchholz": Frau Wilhelmine Buchholz ist das Wort "Neigungsehe" etwas unheimlich, obwohl sie immer wieder hört, dass das ein neuer "moderner" Weg zum ehelichen Glück sei. Auch ihre Tochter Betti scheint diesen Weg beschreiten wollen. Keiner aus der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft gefällt ihr, sie liebt nur den Maler Holle. Um den Familienfrieden wieder herzustellen, schickt Herr Buchholz Frau und Töchter nach Helgoland. Doch Wilhelmine muss früher nach Berlin zurück, um dort nach dem Rechten zu sehen, während Holle Betti nachreist. Auf Helgoland wird heimlich geheiratet.

A continuation of the film "Familie Buchholz": To Wilhelmine Buchholz, the concept of a marriage based on love is somewhat scary, although she hears again and again that this is the "modern" method to a happy marriage. Her daughter Betti seems to agree, as she shows no interest in her middle class companions; she only loves the painter Holle. To once again restore family harmony, Mr. Buchholz sends his wife and daughters to Helgoland. But Wilhelmine has to return early to Berlin to look after things while Betti and Holle continue onward. On Helgoland, they secretly marry.

 

THERE IS A NEWSREEL PREVIEW BEFORE THE FILM, JUST AS GERMAN AUDIENCES MIGHT HAVE SEEN WHEN THE MOVIE WAS FIRST SHOWN (except this newsreel may not be contemporary to when the film was released).

DVD-R IS IN GERMAN WITH NO SUBTITLES (except for the Newsreel). APPROX.102 MINS. COMBINED TOTAL. VERY GOOD FILM QUALITY OVERALL.
