Flying to Australia on Air Singapore, and wanting to avoid the crapy
films they were showing on the personal TV, I happened upon a German film
which was meant for the German passengers of Air Singapore. It was called
Gripsholm and it was about inter-war Germany, the decadent era, and
about the rise of the Nazis.
One of the main characters was a luscious cabaret singer with a haunting
voice who sang a few songs which even now I can't get out of my head. When
I came back, I looked up the film and lo-and-behold the haunting beautiful
voice behind the songs belongs to an Iranian-German woman, Jasmin Tabatabai.
She was also the ultra-sexy actress in the film!
