Hugely controversial at the time of its release for its frank discussions of sexual behaviour, Lubitsch’s loose adaptation of Noël Coward’s Broadway play proved a notable box office success and is now regarded as a classic of Hollywood’s pre-Code era. Split between Paris, London and New York, it sees a charming girl-of-fortune meeting and falling in love with two handsome Americans: a struggling painter and his best friend, an equally unsuccessful playwright. Unable to choose between her two suitors, the trio enters into a platonic three-way relationship with predictably calamitous, yet often hilarious, results.

Legendary thief meets his match in fellow larcenist, but the love between these perfect partners in crime falls under investigation when he plans to burgle both money and heart of their latest target – the sexy, ditsy heiress to a perfume manufacturing empire. Filled with pre-Code sexual innuendo and a quintessential example of “the Lubitsch touch” that sparkles with wit, sophistication, and elegance, Trouble in Paradise – the director’s own personal favourite – is a masterpiece of romantic comedy, a pinnacle of sly virtuosity and high-style cynicism that reigned in 1930s Hollywood.

The Broadcast + Reconstruction (Cine Fan)
122 Minutes
"The Broadcast: An experimental homage to the “free cinema” of the period, Angelopoulos’ debut short film begins like a cinema vérité, and is also a subtly absurdist and subversive satire that slyly past the censors during the beginning of military dictatorship. The story follows a group of television journalists wandering around Athens, asking passersby for their definition of the “ideal man”. An ordinary man is randomly picked as the winner, whose ultimate award is no more than becoming a puppet in a media show. Reconstruction: Hailed as one of the most remarkable debuts ever, Angelopoulos’ modernist reconstruction of the Agamemnon tragedy heralded the New Greek Cinema Movement. A real-life crime committed in a forsaken village is reconstrued as a complex interplay: of a case re-enactment conducted by the police, of a tabloid news reported by the journalists, and of the dying of the Greek traditional values under the military regime. Juxtaposing noir-inflected passion with incisive

The Double Life of Véronique (Cine Fan)

"Shooting for the first time outside Poland, Kie?lowski gave full rein to his interest in metaphysical concerns, leaving politics and everyday realism behind for a highly expressionist spiritual fable of intertwined destinies. Two young women who are doubles unbeknownst to one another – Poland’s Weronika and France’s Véronique – reach an intersection in their lives where one finds love and the other death. The Double Life of Véronique evokes his most ravishing rumination on coincidence and synchronicity, in which the heightened expression of sound and image found renewed intensity through his collaboration with cinematographer S?awomir Idziak, composer Zbigniew Preisner, and sound designer Jacques Witta.

This time, in Rome’s Cinecittà studios directing a film about his parents and his own life, he is absorbed into an elliptical intermingling of memory and reality, time and history, love and borders.

"Inspired by the motto of the French Republic, the Three Colours Trilogy was meant as Kie?lowski’s valedictory statement exploring the meaning of liberty, equality and fraternity in contemporary life. In Three Colours: Blue, the mesmerising Juliette Binoche is the widow of a renowned composer, who seeks an existence free from any bonds after her husband and daughter die in a car accident, only to find herself inseparable from others connected to her in myriad ways. Kie?lowski’s mystical vision of transcendent spiritual forces that unite us resonated within the context of a post-Cold War Europe on the brink of reunification and facing the anxieties of a new millennium.

Desire (Cine Fan)

"Desire is a fruitful yield of artistic cross-pollination between producer Ernst Lubitsch’s sophisticated comedy and director Frank Borzage’s melodramatic sensibility. In her reunion with Gary Cooper since Morocco, Marlene Dietrich forged her new screen persona as a beguiling thief who is compelled to flirt outrageously with a Detroit engineer on vacation in order to retrieve a valuable pearl necklace she stole. Sparkling and twinkling under the Lubitsch touch, the smartly-piloted romantic suspense moves along a journey from deceptive glamour to true confession. And in the Borzagian brand of redemptive power of love, the two lonely hearts – who are at first drawn together by their strife and discord – are magically transcended under the spell of the Spanish Moon. 6/2(Sun): Film talk with Derek Lam "

Crafting his own “touches” of subtle sophisticated slapstick, Wilder mixes glamour, enchantment and cynical mirth in this Cinderella-meet-Don Juan story – a lovely, innocent Audrey Hepburn, daughter of a private eye, comes to rescue and falls for Gary Cooper, a high-flying playboy millionaire whom his father investigates. With pails of champagne and gypsy musicians’ streams of Fascination Waltz, their mood-drenched, seductive rendezvous in the afternoon becomes a wickedly funny game of matching wits leading to the evolution of love.

"Youthful idealism and innocence are confronted with the jaded and cynical perspective of old age in Kie?lowski’s magisterial swansong. When a young model accidentally runs over a dog, the incident brings her in contact with a retired judge who has a habit of spying on others. These explorations of voyeurism and authorial omniscience – ways in which man tries to play God, even he struggles to find love – culminate in a tempest worthy of Shakespeare. A metaphysical treatise on fraternity, Three Colours: Red marks the culmination of Kie?lowski’s life's work as a conjurer of destinies, even as Prospero-like he breaks his staff and drowns his book.

Setting out to contrast the truth inherent in the Homeric myth of Odysseus and the bleak reality of modern Greek, Angelopoulos contrived a film-within-a-film narrative as a metaphor for searching for a displaced father. Returning from exile in the Soviet Union, the old leftist attempts to reconnect with his former life and his ancestral land, only to find a son and a country become virtually unknown to him, and a life destined to be adrift. The first chapter in the “Trilogy of Silence”, this is a profoundly poetic meditation on a man’s failure to reconcile with his present, and a country’s inability to resolve with its past.

Radiating with Angelopoulos’ ambition to create a blend of imaginative filmmaking with classical Greek tragedy forms, this parable is a provocative examination on demythification – from the roots of legend, socialist ideals, to the vain promises of the new century, yet leaving a faint sense of hope in the reincarnated young Alexander.

Lubitsch’s final film (1948’s That Lady in Ermine was released posthumously, completed by Otto Preminger) is an endlessly witty and scathing indictment of British high society, on the eve of World War II. The always delightful Jennifer Jones plays the eponymous plumber’s niece-turned-parlour maid, who meets Charles Boyer’s prominent Czechoslovakian writer at a grand British countryside estate. The irrepressible heroine and the eccentric exile who is hiding from the Nazis form an unlikely alliance, and their burgeoning romance defies the household’s – and the country’s – long-standing social protocols.
