Soviet emissaries Buljanoff, Iranoff, and Kopalski no sooner arrive in Paris to sell some jewelry for the government, than soft capitalist ways begin to corrupt them. Grand Duchess Swana, former owner of the jewels but now exiled in Paris, sends her very good friend, playboy Leon d'Algout, to interfere with the sale. When sly Leon meets stern Comrade Nina Ivanovna, sent to take over from the hapless emissaries, east-west romance results; but major complications intervene...

"Nina Yakushova (Greta Garbo) is a stern attorney hired by a trio of Russian agents, Iranoff (Sig Ruman), Buljanoff (Felix Bressart), and Kopalski (Alexander Granach), to win a lawsuit for jewels stolen during the Russian Revolution. Meanwhile, her debonair Count Leon d’Algout (Melvyn Douglas) forms a romance with her and convinces her to change out of her Communist suit. Ernst Lubitsch’s "Ninotchka" is one of the German-American director’s most political films. Part of that may have to do "

"Jäinen Stalinin vanhapiika-Garbo sulaa ulkomaankommennuksella Pariisin shampanjalle, komeljanttareille ja hedonistiselle elämäntyylille. Luojan kiitos Garbo nauraa, sillä alun jäärouvastereotyyppiä oli puistattavaa katsella. Ninotchka on hätkähdyttävän poliittinen elokuva jonka ytimessä on eräänlainen antipoliittinen, humanistinen sanoma, ''unelma maailmasta jossa ketään ei heitettäisi vankileireille eikä tervehdittäisi kädenheilautuksilla''.* Vuoden 39 kontekstissa tällaine"

"Billy Wilder had long been an admirer of director Ernst Lubitsch when he finally got to write scripts for him in the late 1930s. Wilder reportedly had a notice on his wall that read 'What would Lubitsch do?' as a guide when he hit a snag in the writing or directing process. Wilder got to see first hand what Lubitsch would do with his own material when he co-wrote the fantastic script for Lubitsch's 1939 comedy 'Ninotchka'. A shared sense of cynicism and a penchant for finding comedy in the darke"

"First viewing - Feb. 11th Of the five films I picked up from the library, this was the one I was most excited for. In recent years I've seen this one pop up from time to time, usually on others' best-of/favorites lists. I've never seen any of Garbo's movies, so most of what I know of her comes from other pop culture references to her, scenes carried over into more modern movies from her work. Now that I've finally watched one of her films I'll have to do a better job of catching up with her oth"
