What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film No Room for the Groom

    Petite comédie un peu poussive, tournée en noir et blanc, du bienheureux Douglas Sirk, plus connu pour ses somptueux mélodrames, qui se regarde sans aucun ennui ni déplaisir, bien au contraire, le sourire aux lèvres, à suivre les moult contrariétés d'un Tony Curtis convaincant, dont c'est déjà la 14e prestation cinématographique en quatre ans de carrière, mais aussi son premier rôle principal. www.cinefiches.com
