Fernando F. Croce

The distillate of Lubitsch's cinema of insinuation and evanescence

Not a false note in the whole piece. The performances, visuals and screenplay are all exsquisite.

Lubitsch at the height of his powers as a director of deft, inconsequential and sophisticated comedy.

Trouble in Paradise is a triumph of direction and decor which could have been accomplished only by that scowling, heavy-jowled Teuton who is Paramount's chief contribution to the civilized cinema, Ernst Lubitsch.

It's possible to prefer other Ernst Lubitsch films for their more serene stylings and more plangent emotions, but this 1932 production is probably the most perfectly representative of his works.

Despite the Lubitsch artistry, much of which is technically apparent, it's not good cinema in toto.

The lighthearted Depression-era comedy clearly has the famed Lubitsch touch.

What sticks with you long after the movie is over is the terrific, European cosmopolitan humour, and unrelenting sexiness of it all

This is, without a single word of hyperbole, one of the most taut scripts and perfectly-executed pieces of comic direction in the history of film.

It's a movie that feels both of its time and ahead of all the times that have followed.

A couple of visual gags are still on target and the acting is swell, but on the whole the story is too simple, too flat, and too uninteresting to stand the test of time.

'The satire is sharp, the comedy is witty and urbane, and the characters are so full of life it feels as if they might just walk off the screen.'

This comedy of jewel thieves is itself the prize sparkler of Lubitsch's enterprising career.

In virtually every scene the lively imagination of the German producer shines forth and it seems as though he were the only person in Hollywood who could have turned out such an effective entertainment from such a feathery story.

If one considers that motion picture sound had only been in place for three years when Trouble in Paradise was made, the level of sophistication it shows is astonishing.

The situations are adult. The sexual innuendo is pointed and unmistakable. There's a golden glow to the print, and the actresses are extraordinary.
