A Woman of Paris is a serious, sincere effort, with a bang story subtlety of idea-expression.
A moving and entertaining work, executed with high finesse by a master cineast.
Chaplin's manner is deft and witty, but the depiction of unchecked wealth and the moral rot it breeds links this drawing-room romance to the fierce political comedies in which he stars.
For some years great groups of the illuminati have been proclaiming Charles S. Chaplin an artist. Yet our good old uncles and funny old aunts, who really knew about custard pies, demurred.
Despite its wealth of detail and sharp observations about morality, the film remains curiously insubstantial with its refined dabbling in the elements of satire, sentiment and melodrama exploited with such panache in Chaplin's starring comedies.
