Comment: Elea Geissler as Pünktchen (pictured) in blue bibs. I have watched this movie many years ago and can’t remember the bib scenes. I checked it partly recently and only discovered very few and short scenes at the intro (pictured) and at the beginning (also hanging upside down, not showing her complete bibs). Not sure if any others in bibs or later scenes. I also think that there are better movies, however the plot about the friendship is good. Have to check again. Rating 3-4 for now. Starring Max Felder as Anton (won a Golden Sparrow), further Benno Fürmann and Juliane Köhler. Most clips on YouTube are about a stage play. See also the entry of the b/w 1953 version (also only rating 3 but feauring boys in Lederhosen and sailor suits as well, rating 5 on my Lederhosen blog).
