  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    It is to Becker's exquisite command over superfluity that we owe the pleasures of this light comedy which does not pretend to accelarate rhythm of adumbrate gross characters and situations, but instead abandons us into the life of the two charming protagonists whose playful agression yields moments of sympathy and sensuality (Vernon is dazzlingly and restrainingly elegant). Crisp camerawork and score enhance the joy.

  2. msmichel's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    A lovely romantic comedy from Becker that finds a married couple at a crossroads caused by an argument and his perceived social status. The performances by Daniel Gelin and Anne Vernon are wonderful and genuine though William Tubbs in a supporting role as a Yank husband nearly steals the show.. Solid scripting by the director and Annette Wademant.

  3. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    How the poor present themselves to the rich, and the fear of ridicule. In Édouard et Caroline or Antoine et Antoinette, there is a dream, whether it is lost winning lottery ticket or a beautiful white dress, that blooms inside of a messy apartment, inside an existence that was otherwise focused on simply making ends meet. But it's also a dream, when it all seems to slip away, awakens the most tragic tendencies.

  4. Jason's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    Becker was, though the mandarins would grant him special status, reared in and on the dreaded "Tradition of Quality" in French Cinema. Much of the savvy & bonhomie of this great director come handed down from Pagnol, Guitry, and Becker's old boss, Jean Renoir. A knowing warmth w/ respect to young love and its folly is a cultivated look, put on and worn, if graceful ever the same, congeniality the name of the game.

  5. Kethura Duverlus's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    La fin manquait une réconciliation satisfaisante avec la famille et entre le couple marié. Sinon, le film était léger et présentait des bourgeois à une soirée qui prennent en affection un petit pianiste, triste mais talentueux. Pour ceux qui voulaient une critique des classes sociales, c'est manqué. Les personnages n'essaient pas de changer le monde, ils essaient d'y vivre.

  6. Good's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    This beautiful film would never be made the same way today. That's a shame...

  7. Pok's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    Definitivamente me han gustado más otras películas de Becker. Aquí hace algo interesante al mostrar que las diferencias socioeconómicas pueden ocasionar estragos en un matrimonio. La violencia física de Édouard es inexcusable, pero Caroline también recurre a otra forma de violencia: verbal. Lo peor viene al final, cuando (SPOILER!) la pareja se reconcilia a pesar del conflicto y tras una amenaza de violación.

  8. Mitchell Abidor's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    However magnificent Anne Vernon is, and however much one wants not to judge a film outside the limits of its time, Edouard et Caroline is an unbearable, almost unwatchable film. It's not just that Gelin is odious, but domestic violence and attempted spousal rape are not in the least funny. Caroline is right: they should divorce.

  9. Michael Rozek's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    A quietly stupendous work, groundbreaking in form--by perhaps the greatest unsung filmmaker of all time. A breakneck slice of human experience, wittier yet more poignant than any romantic comedy of its era, marked by marvelous performances from all its actors and electrifyingly energetic cinematography--and, by its loving nature: one that, if you reflect on it, should bring tears to your eyes. See every Becker film.

  11. Mitch's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    A poor pianist, Edouard, and his wife, Caroline, are to go to her rich uncle's party where he will play for people who can help his career, but they fight and decide to divorce. A rich American at the party takes a shine to Edouard's playing and offers him a grand concert. They get home. She throws on a flimsy nighty. He threatens rape now that she's hot. They reconcile. Oh, hell no.

  12. Loz Loory's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    2.5 Too much time spent at the uncle's place as the upper-class milieu is tiring. Possibly could have done with a rewrite where we start out in the husband's parents' flat. Then the beginning screwball bits could take place in different environs. Some superbly witty dialogue between the couple, and the piano music provides a lovely breather from the manic pace. Nice use of the American as the social class equalizer.

  13. Seesaw's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    Interesting quality in Becker's film is that after event doesn't build up to the next time, however the tension of emotion stays in its own vibration, twinkling miraculous moments of life of ordinary.

  15. Jim's rating of the film Edoardo e Carolina

    ★★ /DCP/ Becker’s attempt at marital and class satire is a series of fits and starts. The film finds its charms in the grumbling passions between a wonderful Gelin and Vernon with their dramatic fights and tears but meanders terribly when it switches to the aristocratic gathering with its uninspired jokes and obvious critique.
