  14. cinegeek.de's rating of the film Design for Living

    (...)Ganz nebenbei setzt er dabei die Grundregel der romantischen Hollywood-Komödie ausser Kraft: Die der Monogamie. Normalerweise werden Treue und Vertrauen der Liebenden erprobt, um anschliessend eine Familie zu gründen. Wohl bemerkt: Lubitschs Zweifel an diesen Werten wirken dabei nie verletzend!(...)

  15. LeeRoy Turtledove's rating of the film Design for Living

    "don't ever bow to double chins"

  16. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film Design for Living

    This is about knowing exactly when a scene must start and when it must end, how to tell what has happened in an ellipsis, how to project thoughts and feelings into objects, and there are even some great bits of silent comedy. In a few words, Lubitsch and Hetch stick to a way of conveying things indirectly, but not too indirectly, and they make the most of it.

  17. SpacePirate's rating of the film Design for Living

    A very racy film with the Lubitsch touch. March and Cooper work well off of each other here. A fine pre-Code era comedy/love triangle. Worth a look

  18. pepoire's rating of the film Design for Living

    This was great etc, but someone please coach me, I wish to acquire Miriam Hopkins' weirdo accent.

  19. Fátima Pinheiro's rating of the film Design for Living

  20. Brendan's rating of the film Design for Living

  21. bartkl's rating of the film Design for Living

    A tale of platonic love and art versus carnal desire and lust, revolving around Gilda, the mother of the arts, the heart of the love triangle. Although the plot seems rather superficial, it is very well written, including witty dialogues and clever symbolism. I am usually no fan of theatrical exaggerations, but here it's done so consistent and well that I was able to embrace it. A very charming and mature film.

  22. El Biffo's rating of the film Design for Living

    Surprisingly explicit sexuality for a Hollywood comedy starring Gary Cooper, and the theme is downright scandalous! 4.5 stars
