Critics reviews

Quadrille is frequently viewed as one of Sacha Guitry’s more effervescent films—an accomplishment given the French director’s penchant for cinematic gossamery. But airiness doesn’t necessarily imply minor, even if the film itself is so diligent in making a subject like adultery a feathery matter. The film’s irreverent tone is not a trick, to get us to take it less seriously, but a considerate attempt on Guitry’s behalf… to reveal a more playful and bittersweet side to relationships.
