The scholar David Weir, author of a new BFI Classics Trouble in Paradise, introduces the 1932 film.

Celebrate Ernst Lubitsch’s birthday with a screening of one of his most beloved films. When Gaston, a thief (Herbert Marshall) and his partner Lily, a pickpocket (Miriam Hopkins) decide to pull a scam on Mariette (Kay Francis), who runs a perfume factory. Errant love, sharp social satire and crossed loyalties ensued, and with his famed “Lubitsch touch,” the director makes it feel sweet, urgent, joyful and much more moving than you might expect.
