Cutting It Short

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Caution was obviously still the watchword for Menzel after his political troubles. Charming but desperately thin, like Those Wonderful Movie Cranks this is a period comedy, set in a provincial brewery and working very hard to extract some fun out of the local dignitaries who serve on the board. A gorgeous performance from Vasáryová, as a local beauty delighting in her bounteous sensuality, lends a welcome touch of Maupassant to the rustic frolics.
