    This movie is from 1920. It's a very silly romantic comedy story surrounding a ridiculous war. The story was, like I say, really silly, and everyone was acting outrageously. The best parts were the comic scenes, the sets, and cinematography. It was all so cool looking. I wish the story could have been better, it's got a predictable ending.

    Full of curious inventions, a great document of the silent era.

    Amazing film, that is to cinema what the Baron of Munchahausen is to children books.

    Lubitsch's camera-work and playful mockery of frames is stunning. Pola Negri is wonderfully and viscerally improper as a woman (by early 20th century standards) and the ironic political farce is side-splitting.

    Comedy as it had never seen before; passionate and irrational romance as it had never been satirized before. Brilliant episodic hyperactivity addressed with a wonderful scenery and allegorical scenes, some of them intentional, some of them perhaps not. Lubitsch is an unrecognized master of the genre, and he was one of the first filmmakers (if not the first) to understand that one of the most effective sources of comedy is to mock our own flaws and senseless features. 99/100
