  2. Algitya's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    What a surprising yet stunning 'that' sequence. Successfully made the so-called "typical" conclusion paid-off !

  3. cansu m's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    plumbing=sex obvs. love everything lubitsch touched his finger on.

  4. José Neves's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    35mm, rewatched. A film that focuses much more on dialogues, characters and actors than on the mise-en-scène, which if first may present some distance, as the film unfolds it's perennially installed in the spectator's consciousness making us accomplices and witnesses of the two protagonists improbable "lifes", being also a powerful testimony of Lubitsch's derision towards the social world that reduces us.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Une oeuvre inoubliable et délicieuse qui se déguste comme un mets rare et laisse au fond de l'âme un doux sentiment de plénitude et de bonheur... www.cinefiches.com

  6. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Some great dialogue in this brave, pre-war production. Can't believe Jennifer Jones and her down-turned mouth got to be a part of such great productions. I wish a stronger actress had been given the leading role.

  7. Terri Wise's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    All signs point to me liking this movie, yet it bores me.

  9. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Cluny's plumbing psychosis is probably film's classiest recurring penis gag. It is a uniformly excellent picture, like other Lubitsch works, but this one grows on you, as all great comedies should. The one-liners abound, and have become common parlance in my wife and I's daily repartee. Squirrels to the nuts!

  11. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Lubitsch's last finished film and a perfect parting gift, encapsulating the Lubitsch take on so many topics: politics, art, sex, class, America, and that everlasting, innocent desire to enjoy life—or, as the film puts it, "to do the wrong thing at the right time." Note the heroine, too: completing an arc begun with Pola Negri, she's another of his plucky, spunky, vivacious women destined to cause a glorious uproar.

  12. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Lubitsch's masterpiece? Money, class, place, death, oblivion, war, Shakespeare: Lubitsch touches powerfully and brightly upon so much here. The fierceness of his tracking camera is overwhelming at times; there are these privileged moments as well--Cluny getting drunk, for example--that sparkle beyond most any other work in cinema. And the strangeness of some of these close-ups!! Loved every millisecond.

  13. msmichel's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Later Lubitsch with charm to spare. Jennifer Jones is quite delightful in the title role matched well by the usually debonair Charles Boyer. A fun script both wry and a little naughty....if some people want to give squirrels to nuts its ok with me...

  14. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    I love this late Lubitsch. He was still at full tilt creatively when he made this film. It is one of his best. Jennifer Jones is uniquely funny and should have been allowed to do more comedies. The supporting cast is beyond praise.

  15. Ben Bosko's rating of the film Cluny Brown

  16. WhatsUpWill's rating of the film Cluny Brown

  17. Kenji's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Jones' pretty charm, Boyer's easy elegance, Lubitsch's imagination at work on English eccentricity and class system make for a winning combination.

  18. DK's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    Artfully weird and zany and wonderful. Worth a look for any screwball fan.

  19. Manny Lage's rating of the film Cluny Brown

  22. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Cluny Brown

    One of Lubitsch's best, and most neglected, films. From the evidence of CLUNY BROWN and BEAT THE DEVIL, Jennifer Jones was an inspired comedienne. However, it seems that Selznick, like Hearst with Marion Davies, preferred to see the love of his life in romantic roles rather than comedies. The irony, of course, is that these women were probably cut-ups in real life.
