Down with love – and mood-lifters

Sometimes I find myself in need of a smart light comedy to lift the mood. They are not easy to find. But I have the perfect one!

The clothes and makeup are really fabulous
The interior design is really fantastic and true to the sixties
The music is catchy
The dialog is flowy, smart and sometimes they rimes (in a good way)

… and the casting is perfect!
