"A big-city satire with a romantic heart of gold, The Apartment is a tendresse with complications - famously, the film was inspired by the "borrowed flat" scene from Brief Encounter - and it is still luminous, all these years on"
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"A delightful comedy romance with a clutch of note-perfect performances, The Apartment is the most perfectly tuned, bittersweet urban comedy of the pre-Woody era"
- Simon Braud, Empire
Boasting one of the best final lines in cinema history, Billy Wilder’s bittersweet classic stars Jack Lemmon as a man attempting to progress professionally by letting its executives his apartment for trysts, but complications and a romance of his own ensue.
The film won five Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.
