Billy Wilder’s stunning romantic comedy, starring Jack Lemon and Shirley MacLaine, is an incontestable classic that sparks with Wilder’s typically witty dialogue and picks its nimble way between charming warmth and a darker poignancy (complete with beautiful black and white cinematography).

“Bud” Baxter (Lemmon) is an endearingly well-meaning insurance clerk who lets senior mangers use his apartment for their extramarital affairs, a favour he hopes will be repaid by promotion.

As office politics and the personal and private begin to tangle, Bud’s control of the situation begins to slip.

The opportunist strategy becomes more and more risky, further complicated by the introduction of Fran (MacLaine) who soon becomes entangled in the precarious back and forth between the tyranny of the office and the amorous oasis of the apartment.

Wilder’s film is an intelligent and heart-warming exploration of vulnerability in work and in love; often featured in the ‘greatest films of all time’ lists, Wilder’s influential drama is a festive romance with snow, smart humour and soul!
