Rating: 3/4 -- The prospect of seeing the usually oh-so-serious Greta Garbo nyukking it up proved irresistible to the moviegoing public of 1939. Full Review

The romantic roundelay, linking fine emotions with fine lingerie, is shadowed by the brutality of Soviet tyranny. Full Review
New Yorker
May 9, 2016
This is the cinema's lightest and sharpest appraisal of communism. Full Review
Nov 26, 2018
This one is neither crude clowning nor crude prejudice, but a literate and knowingly directed satire which lands many a shrewd crack about phony Five Year Plans, collective farms, Communist jargon and pseudo-scientific gab. Full Review
TIME Magazine
Jan 15, 2013
The satire may be mostly a matter of easy contrasts, but the lovers inhabit a world of elegance and poise that is uniquely and movingly Lubitsch's. Full Review
Chicago Reader
Feb 3, 2009
Rating: 5/5 -- Ninotchka is delicate flirtation and political satire made into a perfect whole, and a reminder of skills that studio writers have largely lost. Full Review
