I never would have guessed in a million years what a pleasant surprise "The Farmer's wife" turned out to be for me. I love Alfred Hitchcock and consider him one of my favorite filmmakers but I still have to admit that I'm not too impressed about all of his earliest efforts. I started to watch this charming little-known gem with a very low expectations since I knew it wasn't even a thriller and therefore not Hitch's number one genre but I certainly didn't expect it to be as funny, warm-hearted and downright irresistible as it actually was. Actors were marvelous, humor was brilliant and most important of all the story was timeless. I honestly can't remember the last time I got such a good feeling from a movie. I'll promise you if you like films of the silent era this one is definitely a gem you don't want to miss!
