A beautiful film with subtle performances, a plot rich and textured with an astonishing music, great love stories, tragic events, and the people behind them. The film begins with a number of children in a Chinese country mansion in a house where the mother has moved from her young children with her father. A strange old lady who has been part of the house for many years in a room down the hall says, "No matter what happens to me, I will always be there. If I ever want to disappear I will go." She then points to the stars on the ceiling and says, "They are my eyes. I see them when I close my eyes." It is from this unusual view point that the film is filmed and its end reflects the change in her world. Children in another room dance to the music of George Gershwin, creating a mood of enchantment, and a young girl begins to recite from the Georges Favre poem "You will ever be in my heart, and in my thoughts, and I will always love you." It is from this point that Luisa Miller is born. The mother continues to "know" her daughter but she can not see her. She describes it as a kind of coma, and the film ends with her death, accompanied by the music of Gershwin. The German director Amelie Ullrich begins with an extended silent scene of a school principal making fun of her daughter. Soon afterwards, the teacher in question approaches Luisa, and she responds with a quiet resignation that this would be her last day in this cruel place. The rest of the film is shot from the point of view of her mother. When Luisa returns home after having been away for two years, she is withdrawn from the joy of reuniting with her father, and although she remembers him as being an important part of her life, she seems to not trust her mother and also refuses to help her father carry out a search for his missing daughter. When the search turns up nothing, the principal calls a meeting to discuss the situation. He makes a statement to the effect that Luisa has disappeared for seven years and should be discovered by a son or a grandson. This initial death scene begins to take on the sadness of the widow, as she begins to say goodbye to her husband and daughter. To highlight the sadness of this sequence, a mysterious red light is placed over the screen during the close-ups. This light gradually turns to the colors of the elder and younger children of the house, which together with the music become the most memorable aspect of the film.
