The Shop Around the Corner

The Shop Around the Corner ★★★★★

Was unable to get the smile off my face for most of the film. Lubitsch directs perfectly as the words zip by and around one another. Drama and real sadness mixed in with the great banter and comedy.

Particularly liked how the film started. As we watch everyone show up to the shop, we get tiny introductions to all the characters who work there, filling us in on who we will be following and easily conveying the culture of the store.

Edit: Oh yeah! And this was my first Lubitsch movie!
