About the Movie

Adam is a rich industrialist, who aspires to a more cultured world. Spurred on by playful jibes that he is little more than a city suit living the capitalist's dream, this frustrated amateur opera singer decides to throw an opera in his lavish country retreat. Once his friends see him belting out the notes, he feels sure it will spell the end to their shallow taunts. In fact, it might even help him win the hand of a female conductor he has been pursuing whom - it just so happens - is the first to be recruited for his showpiece.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A pallid gloss of a work that teems with deception, disguise and mistaken identity, not to mention humor. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, May 2, 2013

Rotten: It's hard to explain why every character in 1st Night behaves like an adolescent in a sitcom. – Pete Vonder Haar, Village Voice, Apr 30, 2013

Rotten: The movie may appeal to theater aficionados and Juilliard undergrads, but to the average moviegoer, it's a trudge. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, May 2, 2013

Rotten: The political dynamic that underpins The Rules of the Game is nonexistent in 1st Night, which is fixated entirely on the zany sexcapades of its characters. – Drew Hunt, Slant Magazine, Apr 27, 2013

Music and fun

lush, comic and with a great parade of characters. Clearly those who saw it liked it more than the critics above. Perhaps if more of those who bought reviewed it would be a classic.
