Awful pretty on the outside but internally, not a whole lot going on. Still very nice, because you’re watching Lubitsch direct Dietrich in the regular mode of European love triangle vacation movies. Probably will never think about this movie, but don’t you want to see all that?
I watched a Christmas film in September.
And it’s the happiest I’ve been all day. Will be returning to it for future holidays, or future dreary September days.
It’s a film about atonal dissonance. And sometimes Christmas comes early.
