't Was één april
Comedy about a case of mistaken identity German-Dutch comedy about a butcher who becomes rich.
As an April Fool's joke, his friends announce the impending visit of a baron, who turns out to be a pseudo-baron. Things get even more confusing when an actual baron does appear. 't Was één april is a so-called 'multi-language version', a film that is simultaneously shot in two languages.
In the German version, the film was about a pseudo-prince. Director Detlef Sierck later said: 'I don't really remember much about it, only that the character of the prince in the German script had to be a baron in the Dutch version. In the Netherlands, you definitely weren't supposed to make fun of princes'.
