The Shop Around the Corner

"Excellent"

The Shop Around the Corner Review


Very cute and clever love/hate story, set in 1930s Budapest (for some reason), about a pair of store employees who fall in love over a pen pal correspondence, but despise each other in real life. Funny and timeless. Jimmy Stewart is fantastic.

Recently remade as the dismal You've Got Mail.
