The film that proved to be the passport for its director, Douglas Sirk, to Hollywood, tells of a Swede who falls in love with Puerto Rico and marries a rich landowner. A decade later, however, she yearns for her homeland. Overly melodramatic in certain sections, it's saved by the director's obvious skills and ironic detachment.
