Our take

The great American critic Andrew Sarris once dubbed Michel Deville “the French Lubitsch,” and a shared lightness of touch is in ample evidence in Love at the Top. With a pair of nimble leads in Jean-Louis Trintignant and Romy Schneider, this playful sex comedy mines the spiritual from the physical.
