This is nothing short of a masterpiece. With Lubitsch at the height of his powers directing an impeccable cast led by Stewart and Sullavan, it is hard to imagine a more perfectly formed romantic comed. Far from an undiluted romp, it has a dark subplot which serves only to heighten the pleasure it affords. Every performance is a masterclass in delicacy and precision.
