'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
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'.
