ReviewSource Boxoffice Magazine
Review Scintillatingly and as Russian as Borsht, this romantic comedy, which satirizes life and love in the Soviets, at the same time adds several inches to the film stature of two of Hollywood's most famous -- Producer-Director Ernst Lubitsch and Actress Greta Garbo. A streamlined screenplay, literally sparkling with brilliant dialog, tests the mettle of this duo, with the result that the widely vaunted Lubitsch touch of yore asserts itself with new mastery. Garbo finds herself in an entirely new type of role, one which prescribes the more difficult nuances of sophisticated comedy, and while she rises to the situation nobly, her elegance remains undeniable, and she carries herself with proud assurance of her talents. While Ninotchka may lack something for the masses, it must be catalogued as a triumph for all concerned.

Review Delightful romantic comedy. Garbo is a cold Russian agent sent to Paris to check up on her comrades, who are being seduced by capitalism. She inadvertently falls in love with a playboy who melts her communist heart. Garbo talks and laughs. Satirical, energetic and witty.
