Schlussakkord Details


Schlussakkord (released in the U.S. as Final Accord) is the melancholy tale of a young mother who leaves her child behind in Germany to join her no-good husband in America. Hubby eventually kills himself, rendering the heroine all alone in the world. Meanwhile, her son is adopted by a kindly orchestra conductor and grows up in an atmosphere of luxury and love. In the tradition of East Lynne, the conscience-stricken mother contrives to get a job as a governess in the orchestra leader's home, hoping to be nearer her son -- but never intending to reveal her true identity. The story takes a startling turn when the woman falls in love with the conductor, whereupon both are implicated in a nasty murder case. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
