What are people saying?

  • Holyphool's rating of the film The Trio's Engagement

    Delightful, whimsical with lovely social comment, farcical and moving in its tale of three hapless fellows all in love with the boss' beautiful daughter. Shimazu has a lightness that almost evokes Lubitsch but also can take one's breath away with beautifully observed moments detailing the period ....one wants to see more of this wonderful director's work ...
