1 edition published in 2009 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Produced by the prolific Willi Forest, Hofrat Geiger (Counsellor Geiger) is based on a popular Viennese stage play. The story focuses on an elderly government functionary, played by Paul Horbiger. While routinely filing some yellowed documents, Horbiger learns of the existence of the daughter he never knew he had. The rest of the film details his anxious search for that daughter and the rekindling of the romance between Horbiger and a former lover. The film version of Hofrat Geiger proved immensely satisfactory to the fans of the original play."--Allmovie.com
