Georgette live in Paris with her rather unexciting and effeminate husband, an actor and interpretive dancer. Meanwhile, Suzanne lives across the street, and reads romance novels while dreaming of someone more exciting than her own lackluster spouse. Each woman happens across the other's husband, and begins her dream affair. Four people: each cheating on their spouse, and none of them aware that their own spouse is cheating. Who will find out first, and how?
Absolutely delightful - clever as a whip and very witty
This is a delightful change of pace from the ponderous costume dramas of Lubitsch's early career, at which he was lousy, I might add. He found his niche in comedy and this gem is a prime example. It's like eating a marvelous dessert full of surprising bon bons of flavor. The cast is uniformly wonderful and the comic action moves at a quick pace. The titles are some of the funniest and wittiest ever written. Don't miss this one. A sheer joy.
