Blake Edwards United States, 1968

Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film The Party

A great example of a film with no real plot. This party takes a while to get started, since the first half is mostly disconnected mildly amusing gags, but after the dinner, this oyster opens up, revealing a movie with a surprising amount of heart. For most of the party you'll have a smile on your face, and sometimes that's better than occasional laughs. Claudine Longet and Sellers are wonderful. Such a sweet piece.
