Lucia Bosè plays a Milanese shop girl who achieves a quick success on the screen because of her looks and charm, but who cannot move up into more challenging roles. She thus finds herself unable to advance or retreat, and there is no one to blame, not even herself. (Andrew Sarris, Village Voice)

Garbo, Lubitsch, and the screwball comedy come together in this film in a most astonishing result: the closest thing to a convincing socialist heroine the English-speaking cinema has yet produced. It’s a nice payoff to the screwball tradition: that it had the freedom to offer even this surprise. (James Harvey, Romantic Comedy)
