The Shop Around the Corner

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

In a large shop in Budapest, it’s the busy run-up to Christmas. A couple of driven sales staff are in competition with each other, yet they’re also unwittingly in an anonymous romantic relationship, which until now has been conducted purely by letter.

This delightful romantic comedy is often overlooked in Christmas terms due to James Stewart’s popularity in It’s a Wonderful Life, but this is as funny, subtle, and joyous as you would expect from the great Ernst Lubitsch.
