Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Über den Dächern von Nizza

Hitchcock takes a vacation and decides to shoot a film along the way. Sure, it's an effortless romp, charming and affable, full of great moments and a feeling of definite immersion (as we experience the caper as a co-conspirator), but it's also Hitchcock experimenting with form; using the script as an excuse to play with colours, sounds, light and movement.
