this film is simply amazing, after a long and hard day I watched it and it truly make me smile for more than a while. I recommend it to everyone!
Wonderful movie. Absolutely loved it. Ernst Lubitsch definitely knew his trade pretty darn well. :)
Jimmy Stewart is great here but the whole cast succeeds to make this a quaint little romantic story set in Budapest. Stewart's characterization of "Mr. Popkin" towards the end of the film is so well done you can completely picture him and nearly feel contempt for Stewart for stealing Ms. Novak away from this imaginary character.
