The players are from the famous Parisian theaters
Very good acting sets this film among the best of the week. The story makes amusing comedy and there's just a touch of farce given to it in the right places, like salt, that keeps it pleasant. The players are from the famous Parisian theaters, and what this reviewer especially noticed was the marked contrast that their rendering of the scene where the irascible parent dismisses as unwelcome would-be son-in-law makes with the rendering that this not uncommon scene usually gets. In the usual film the parent seems to think it necessary to overdraw a rage until it becomes ridiculous. So skillfully is the comic situation acted in this film that the action seems natural in that particular atmosphere, even in those parts that required farce. It would have been no hard matter to make the scene where the two lovers attempt to commit suicide seem very foolish. As these two artists put it over, it is hard to tell it from pathos; in fact, though not a great scene nor a very remarkable one, but it was handled with remarkable intelligence. - The Moving Picture World, September 9, 1911
