Impossible Love (German: Unmögliche Liebe) is a 1932 German drama film directed by Erich Waschneck and starring Asta Nielsen, Ery Bos and Ellen Schwanneke.[1] It was the final film of Nielsen, and the only sound film she appeared in. It premiered at the Mozartsaal in Berlin. Neilsen had been a major star during the First World War and the early 1920s but her screen career gradually declined and she hadn't appeared in a film since That Dangerous Age in 1927. Four years after making Impossible Love she returned to her native Denmark. It is also known by the alternative title of Crown of Thorns.

The film is based on the 1929 novel of the same title by Alfred Schirokauer. It was shot at the Johannisthal Studios in Berlin. The film's sets were designed by the art director Hans Jacoby.[2]


The widowed Vera Holgk arrived in Germany from Riga in 1917 and raised her two daughters alone. Working as a successful sculptor she has provided for them, directing her whole energies towards their wellbeing. Now both are grown up, one a cellist and the other employed in a photographic studio, and contemplating marriage. Vera has more free time and after encountering the charming, younger fellow sculptor Professor Steinkampp, she is persuaded to enter a major competition. Over time their relationship develops into a romance. Her daughters are at first disbelieving and not suspicious about the secret affair.

Vera wins the first prize, but an embittered former lover of Steinkampp maliciously breaks news of to a newspaper gossip columnist a major scandal breaks out along with several false claims. This threatens the respectable marriage her eldest daughter hopes to make. Worse Vera is devastated to discover that Steinkampp is already married, his deranged but loving wife lives in an asylum. Vera visits her and realises that her own relationship is doomed.
