Dull!
28 May 2018 | by gnok2002See all my reviews

I'm inserting reviews for films that so far lack one, this is my note on this film... 'Poor early Clair effort, an early aviator crash lands and is recovering in a remote eastern European country, where he falls for the countess, then (spoiler redacted)! The pacing is poor, and confusing, dull! So far I have managed to see 17 R.Clair films, and I find his work variable, some being excellent 6/7, The Ghost Goes West, And Then There Were None; down to poor 2/7, this & Break the News. The print I viewsd was a decent restoration, so hopefully someone else will post a more positive view.
