Love is a game any number can play . . . especially in the afternoon. Academy Award winners Gary Cooper and Audrey Hepburn star in Billy Wilder's classic romantic comedy, Love in the Afternoon. When Parisian private detective Claude Chavasse (Maurice Chevalier) tells a client that his wife is having an affair with American Frank Flannigan (Cooper), the client vows to kill Flannigan. To prevent a murder, Chavasse's daughter, Ariane (Hepburn), goes to warn Flannigan. Ariane resorts to seductively teasing Flannigan to lure him away from danger--not realizing that she has instantly captured the man's heart. Now, in a twist, Flannigan hires Chavasse to locate the mysterious temptress ... the detective's own daughter.

As Andrew Sarris says, not without its cruelties, but not without its beauties as well.

An over-long and only spasmodically amusing romantic comedy...

It's the closest Wilder ever came to Ernst Lubitsch.
