This movie gets off on the wrong track because it begins with a commentary on love and the new 20th century woman. If you can forget that, it is a deliciously done period piece filled with humorous skits that illustrate the characters. It is a story that could be redone as a modern comedy. A shy middle aged man with no experience with women goes to a wedding and ends up being chased around the reception by the gorgeous bride who has fallen in love with him at the church while standing at the alter. The little scenes filling out the characters and the idiosyncrasies of the times are wonderful, like small beautiful portraits. This is not a movie for fast action, it is for those who appreciate atmosphere and character.
