1/2 or 2/3 of a masterpiece.
Starts unbelievably strong and has some of the best laughs i've ever gotten out of lubitsch.
But then it makes a weird turn and never recovers, at least to me. It becomes much more darker and lacks the heart of my favorite lubitsch's.
It seems to be trying to make a commentary on trust within marriage (maybe, i think) but the tone is too farsical. And again it lacks the heart. At his best, lubitsch can really make you care about the characters you are watching. And i was in this one, until the 3rd act came along.
I don't know, the 3rd act really caught me off guard.
But i guess i would need a rewatch to really put a finger on it.
