Indiscreet (1958)



Critic Consensus: Indiscreet spins rom-com gold out of a premise just sturdy enough to set the stage for typically delightful work from its wonderfully well-matched leads.

Critic Reviews for Indiscreet

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7)

We are never unsure about how Indiscreet will end, but the way it gets there -- lightly, cleverly, at a pace and with a rhythm that is closer to a foxtrot than a sprint -- makes the exercise worthwhile.

"Indiscreet" is short on plot but more than makes up for it in style.

January 24, 2019 | Full Review…

A fine light comedy, with unexpected passages of seriousness, marked by the Donen touch in its adventurous visuals and vivacious performances.

August 19, 2014 | Full Review…

A funny, freewheeling version of Broadway's Kind Sir.

August 19, 2014 | Full Review…

A beguiling love story delicately deranged by the complications of sophisticated comedy, Indiscreet is an expert film version of Norman Krasna's 1953 stage play, Kind Sir.

A thin but impishly gay and enchanting film.

Audience Reviews for Indiscreet

Director Stanley Donen manages to concoct an elegant comedy out of an extremely mundane screenplay. It all comes down to seeing the stars from Hitchcock's "Notorious" together again - this time older, but still two of the most beautiful and charismatic faces in film, only much more suave and bubbly and without the complex layers of self-destruction from the previous film. Ultimately, Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman are the only reason to justify watching this film nowadays. It's interesting to see Bergman tackling with some comedy and boy, Cary Grant can sure dance.
