It is a work more than 50 years ago.
I think it is a pretty good idea to "promote the secret of your boss as a weapon."
However, it was too outdated, and I could not empathize with the company's settings.
I think that making drama is pretty good.
I thought that I would like to see it because it is an immortal masterpiece, but I am not as dramatic as my work.
However, Hollywood movie is surely a happy ending, so you can be assured of it.
I think that the evaluation is "good".

[good point]
While being a comedy touch, it is a very stylish story.
While dealing with adultery and power hurdles, romance is drawn without getting stuck.

[Bad point]
People who are pure from love may be unbearable films from the beginning ...

[Comprehensive evaluation]
The characters are very attractive. Of course, the power of the performer is also great, but I think the script, the power of the dialogue is also great.
That person appears in a little action and dialogue, and you can have familiarity.
Even my boss' s boss seems to have some place I can not hate.

I hesitate to hesitate to have a hero who is clumsy and in touch with the heroine ...
The last is a neatly happy ending, and the aftertaste is also a very good movie.
It is a work with universal appeal, which is well understood in modern times.
It also serves as a recommendation "very good"

I think that it was a work that has been devised variously. I'm glad it ended in a happy ending.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
I think that it is masterpiece of a gem among the director Billy Wilder's work. There is only a movie that won six Academy Awards and it is not half done.

The Japanese translation of the title outlines the content of this movie and shoots its attitude. As a story is a story about the adult 's dirty lie that a common insurance company' s mediocre and unclear Boncra employees have to lend the keys of an apartment as an affair confrontation site in exchange for promotion.

Wilder's skill is drawing skillfully and comically on this story that will definitely make a drama when it is made by a Japanese person and it will definitely become a daytime drama. The cast members are excellent and the performance is good. Especially it is really cute as heroin 's franc.

It is common for these big companies to get involved in the lies of their bosses as a condition of bribes. Also the bosses were drawn exquisitely as a typical adult who is also really dirty again. And I think that well-being like the kindness that the hero is not rewarded at the moment was well drawn.

However, of course, it is plus and minus zero and it is done well. Although he got a managerial position in a few weeks from a flat employee, he was drawn to a lie of the director next time, and the director is also a brute forceful boss who is not mean stupid.

From the hero, the heroine, the boss's triangle relation is interesting, and the hero witnessed that the heroine tried to commit suicide of sleeping pills in his room, so that the next doctor suffered further misunderstanding. However, it is the hero's likelihood to pass through lies as lies without strangling excitement there.

As a result, the revelation of the dismissed secretary will cheat and the director will lose family and get divorced, the company will kill the company but will officially try to marry the heroine. However, the wholesaler does not wholesale, the hero refuses to lend the key of the apartment to the boss and the company also submits his resignation.

On the New Year 's Eve, the director and the heroine enjoy Omine trying to marry, but after finding out that the hero has submitted his resignation, he notices his own thoughts and finishes a cup with two people by visiting the hero's room.

Urban sense and dialogue are excellent and it is really funny, and if it is a Wilder fan, it will be grinding because some of the advertisements of my movie are in this movie. We are doing publicity promotion in movies including "lost weekend".

Last is quitting each other and becoming a happy lover as an adult society It has become a happy ending that can have hope and it is quite well done. People who are overwhelmed by newcomers and love in their 20s think that it is a masterpiece to watch by all means once. Evaluation is "highest".

Jack, it is a comedy movie starring lemon. A flat employee working for an insurance company Nobaxter lends a room of his apartment as a close meeting site with cheating partners for better work ratings .... This is a dreadful effort Is it called?

Even if my boss is doing fine with my mistress, I have to endure it in the cold in the midnight when I get caught in a painful cold. I would like to have something to do with work if I do it, but I was not able to acknowledge it so much at work until now Baxter.

So, Baxter loves you at first sight of the france of the elevator girl that Mr. McClain feels like. No, Shirley of this time. McLain was certainly charming. Short hair looked nice and it was attractive to the lively look.

But Well, this Mr. Fran was actually an incompetent of the director who requested Baxter's business and asked him to lend a room as well.
Baxter I thought until I wanted to marry her without knowing that I felt like a sad clown.

There are various painful things between the two people, and although the future is uneasy, hope can be held The way it was finished is a comedy movie.

Even so ... Jack ... Lemon was a wonderful comic player. That expression and dialogue really invites strange words.
