All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5)

A fine light comedy, with unexpected passages of seriousness, marked by the Donen touch in its adventurous visuals and vivacious performances.

A funny, freewheeling version of Broadway's Kind Sir.

Top Critic

A beguiling love story delicately deranged by the complications of sophisticated comedy, Indiscreet is an expert film version of Norman Krasna's 1953 stage play, Kind Sir.

A thin but impishly gay and enchanting film.

Here the New York setting gave way to Mayfair, and Donen piled on the civilised charm.

It's nonsense, of course, but utterly charming.

Audience Reviews for Indiscreet

Director Stanley Donen manages to concoct an elegant comedy out of an extremely mundane screenplay. It all comes down to seeing the stars from Hitchcock's "Notorious" together again - this time older, but still two of the most beautiful and charismatic faces in film, only much more suave and bubbly and without the complex layers of self-destruction from the previous film. Ultimately, Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman are the only reason to justify watching this film nowadays. It's interesting to see Bergman tackling with some comedy and boy, Cary Grant can sure dance.
