A love triangle just got more complicated
21 February 2019 | by pscamp01See all my reviews

My Cousin From Warsaw is a 1931 adaptation of a hit play about a banker who takes the summer off from his job to stay at home, much to the chagrin of his wife and her lover. The ensuing truce is strained when the wife's cousin (or is she the hushand's cousin? the movie is vague on this point) shows up. Sonia, the Polish cousin, is played by Elvire Popesco who played the same role during the play's first run, and who would revive it continuously over the years. And therein lies part of the problem of this movie: all of the men in the movie find her irresistible, while I found her more than a little annoying. Much of the humor of the movie is strained, although there are some amusing touches here and there, particularly when it comes to the musical scenes. This movie was probably a big hit during its time, but it does not hold up particularly well.
