Trouble in Paradise is one of the great romantic comedies, a watermark in the genre. With great performances (in particular Miriam Hopkins & Herbert Marshall), the sophisticated humor, its witty yet wistful story, its lush B&W cinematography, & its brilliant direction courtesy of the acclaimed Ernst Lubitsch, Trouble in Paradise is surely one of the finest Hollywood films of the 1930s. It's got 'the Lubitsch touch'.
'You wanted one hundred thousand francs, and I thought you wanted me'. Just glorious cinema, the timing, the grace and elegance of each composition and the subtlety in the performances and Lubitsch's direction make this nothing short of a cinematic delight (plus the sexual chemistry can only be matched by Welles and Hayworth in The Lady From Shanghai). 5/5
