  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Doll

    The prologue with Ernst Lubitsch, the scenes with the apprentice and, naturally, Ossi Oswalda. This is comedy alright but very subtle comedy. Strongly recommended.

  2. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Doll

    An amusing comic romp that acknowledges and directly plays on the connections between Pygmalion and Coppelia. It boats a number of striking creative techniques (the iris around the priests, the shadow between the grieving baron and his subjects), but its true worth lies on its heroine: a willful mix of playful mischievousness and (eventually) genuine affection. Definitely a gem of sorts.

  5. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film The Doll

    Only worthwhile because of Ossi Oswalda. It's charming, but ultimately forgettable.

  6. 絵莉's rating of the film The Doll

    Ossi was such a genius actress and so adorable.

  8. suede's rating of the film The Doll

    3/10. One of the most disappointing films from Lubitsch's Berlin period, this is a plain, highly repetitive slapstick fairy tale. Am puzzled by its high ratings, esp. compared to other early silents by the man. In spite of a few memorable visuals—a wonderful introductory cameo by EL, the cardboard scenery, the hilarious "horses", the doll's controls—the ~65 min runtime was tough. Saw it with a poor accordeon score.

  9. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Doll

    Hilarante comedia de situaciones silente representada a modo teatral que mezcla el montaje absurdo, que de hecho es la gran cuota humorística del filme. Lubitsch tiene ingenio para provocar la carcajada, pero también la modestia al momento de no crear la gran historia ni la vasta puesta en mise en scene.

  10. msmichel's rating of the film The Doll

    Early Lubitsch silent comedy that seems to have an interesting undertone of male fear of female sexuality lurking throughout. It's a slight comedy that wears out its short running time early but an interesting curio none the less.

  11. Dogville59's rating of the film The Doll

    That was a fun creative movie. I laughed so much.

  12. filmcapsule's rating of the film The Doll

    A delightful early Lubitsch comedy that shows his visual creativity and witty remove from the petty machinations of man. I love how the film frames the action within a dollhouse and carries that comedic unreality throughout, from the self-consciously phony backdrops to the hilarious horse costumes.

  13. samlane's rating of the film The Doll

    Loved the early use of breaking the fourth wall...

  14. Ethan's rating of the film The Doll

  15. wolfmansRazor's rating of the film The Doll

    Vastly underseen. A bizarre and astonishing comedy of the male attempt to harness and control female sexuality. I'm not sure any movie has ever so successfully satirized male disgust/fear/fascination of female sexuality, and with such gleeful gusto!

  16. Sérgio P.'s rating of the film The Doll

  17. Jugend21's rating of the film The Doll

  18. wpqx's rating of the film The Doll

    My favorite German Lubitsch film I've seen

  19. chanandre's rating of the film The Doll

    7 years from being A HUNDRED YEARS OLD. that's amazing. joão botelho presented this. so his insight and then this (with a norman mcLaren short before, i think it was 'Canon') made my night oh so worthwhile.
