The Apartment ★★★★½

"Some people take, some people get took. And they know they're getting took and there's nothing they can do about it."
(Fran Kubelik)

Hi everybody, I catched up this all time classic from 1960 and must say the reputation of the film is absolutely deserved even though I expected something else. Because after Billy Wilders huge success "Some like it hot" in 1959 he wanted to direct another comedy alongside Jack Lemmon and I honestly expected something like said one which is additionaly one of my favorite comedys. Instead this film is much more serious and the humor is much more subtle.
