what a sweet and charming movie, so cute, so gentle, a delicious cup of fresh air!
Just "knowing her" by name, I fell in Love with exquisite Clunny Brown, I name Jennifer Jones.
Lovely, pretty, how she acts is exactly what is needed for he part. She is Clunny Brown !
And Charles Boyer, yeah, wonderful, has the right tone too.
What about that bloody temporary "lover", Reginald Gardiner, if I'm not wrong ? just perfect !
I had that definitive smile all along, and still have it now...
and would you believe I enjoyed every minute of Cluny Brown ?
All the characters are pushed to their limits, frank and strong caricatures of different members of our human society...
May be you might feel it's too precious and not realistic, but who cares ? Am I here to watch the news ? NO WAY !
And do not forget once it was like that, for real, and actually if it takes different shapes, it's still the same...
So, great acting from all, I bow once more, and write : Hats off to Mr Lubitsch ! He's one of the true master of comedy !
Some reviewers seem to have small complains about the plot, why not ? yes, it is quiet thin, but for myself I don't mind as long as it has all this kind of charm...
Me ? You people I tell you, I'd rather watch plenty ones with a thin storyline played like this one, (finaly leaving me with a smile going up to my ears) rather ones with more elaborated plot, well played too, which let me a bad taste because they are too dark and hopeless...
Yes, the undertone is frivolous, about deep and sad topics
but personally, if not always, I believe it's a good way of healing human soul...
It's not Life, it's Cinema, I like to dream and smile !!!
They don't do like them anymore (or so seldom...) whispers an aging fox !
A film is never really good unless the camera is an eyes in the head of a poet Orson Welles
