Der Postmeister (English: The Postmaster or The Stationmaster) is a 1940 German film directed by Gustav Ucicky. Released during the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, it depicts Russians in a sympathetic light, unlike their depiction in such films as Friesennot before or GPU after.
At the Venice Film Festival, it won the Mussolini Cup for best foreign film.
The daughter of a stationmaster falls in love with a cavalry captain. He persuades her to run away with him to St. Petersburg, but she realizes there that he never intended to marry her.
