A quiet film with meaning
25 October 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I ordered The Perfect Husband for research purposes only especially on the late Victorian era. It was set in 1900 Prague so I bought the tape to observe the wardrobe, art direction, and style of that period. The most interesting moment is in the beginning about a man who fights with an old lady and a dog. She throws his cigar out the train window. He takes and throws the dog out to fetch it. It's a pretty sick moment in the film with a happy ending. There is much more to this story about marriages, infidelity, and a child's illness. It is done quietly and with subtleness. It is worth watching again but I would fast forward the scene about the dog because it makes me uncomfortable to think about it even. I'm sure nothing happened to that dog in real life.
