  2. pluviosity's rating of the film Bluebeard's Eighth Wife

    A meet cute turned into will-they-won't-they comedy. It's hilarious, fun ride with most amazing actors, much much too bad the ending was far too exhausted and simplistic. But then again, it's one hell of a ride.

    "Oh, the choice is entirely yours, Michael; art, music, history, the League of Nations... Anything that doesn't interest you" Czechoslovakia, Gary Cooper, Lubitsch you're a darling

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Bluebeard's Eighth Wife

    Succulent, d'une superbe finesse et d'une charmante drôlerie. On oubliera pas de si tôt l'utilité soporifique du nom propre "Tchécoslovaquie"... www.cinefiches.com

  8. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Bluebeard's Eighth Wife

    The second half is a bit of a muddle, both in its plot and its sexual politics. Traditionally, these convulsions are attributed to the combination of Lubitsch's romance and screenwriter Billy Wilder's bitter cynicism, and poor Gary Cooper is nearly pulled in half trying to do both. But the first half is some of everyone's best work. The opening 20 minutes belong in the meet-cute hall of fame.

  10. chanandre's rating of the film Bluebeard's Eighth Wife

    [Cinémathèque PT #476: 35 mm] (2007) - is there a Lubitsch film that is not absolutely perfect? I think not.

  11. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Bluebeard's Eighth Wife

    Terrific first half featuring some of Wilder and Brackett's best comedic writing, and one of Lubitsch's most exquisite direction. It's a shame the second half feels a bit too convoluted (and flat), even for a screwball comedy. A worthwhile addition, though, to any Golden Era aficionados.

    “It’s a lovely place, beautiful, but the class of people who come here gets worse every year. And this year, we seem to have next year’s crowd already!”
