billy wilder aint the kind of filmmaker that thinks visually like hitch or bergman... sure he can, but it will go against the grain of what he really is... writer first, director second...
that said, the apartment is one great cinematic achievement... its the ultimate romcom that is devoid of cheese and silly pretensions... while jack lemmon may have carried the film with his comic talents and superb timing, the film really takes off with billy wilder's panache as a writer for the screen...
the guy is simply a giant in the history of film...
