What are people saying?

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film So This Is Paris

    Silent Lubitsch! Lubitsch's early Hollywood films are tragically hard to find, and this one is a fizzy delight, a criss-crossing marriage circle that doesn't come together the way it needs to, except to cheekily rib the idea that any of this has a moral. But it spills with wonderful moments, and somehow has more quotable lines of dialogue than many talkies. Key takeaway: happiness is a combination of love and lies.

  • José Neves's rating of the film So This Is Paris

    35mm. Is already a compendium of Lubitsch's style and themes, a sophisticated comedy of deceit and infidelities, but it's still a kind of motif in a minor tone. There are, however, moments of a superior formality: the sequence of the party, where the film meets a constructivist editing and the initial sequences between the front apartments, with the depth of field through windows, announcing what Oliveira would do.

  • FISCHER's rating of the film So This Is Paris

    Un festival Ernst Lubitsch, habilement charpenté sur la solide grammaire théâtrale de la farce, avec ses imparables quiproquos, ses subtils sous-entendus et ses délicieux impairs, entre intrigue sentimentale et ravissante comédie de moeurs qui ne compte pas moins de cent dix-huit portes ou fenêtres, franchies (réellement ou par le regard) par les différents protagonistes, en verve et en vrac.
