Chaplin's manner is deft and witty, but the depiction of unchecked wealth and the moral rot it breeds links this drawing-room romance to the fierce political comedies in which he stars.

For some years great groups of the illuminati have been proclaiming Charles S. Chaplin an artist. Yet our good old uncles and funny old aunts, who really knew about custard pies, demurred.

A Woman of Paris is a serious, sincere effort, with a bang story subtlety of idea-expression.

A moving and entertaining work, executed with high finesse by a master cineast.

Chaplin's "drama of fate" is really a drama of coincidence and irony, as befits the crossroads of Victorian and Jazz Age Europe

The soap opera love triangle story takes the form of a morality play and is well-constructed but hardly substantial.

Its vintage melodrama does creak with age nowadays. But it remains a Chaplin masterwork that deserves rediscovery.

Despite its wealth of detail and sharp observations about morality, the film remains curiously insubstantial with its refined dabbling in the elements of satire, sentiment and melodrama exploited with such panache in Chaplin's starring comedies.

It's a Chaplin masterpiece and showed a layer to his work that I never knew existed.

An important milestone in Chaplin's career, this simple melodrama overcomes the limits of its story to offer a fascinating example of the writer-director's understanding of the constraints of cinematic form.
