Max Ophuls’ “dazzling visual symphony” (Georges Sadoul) is an elegant social comedy with ultimately tragic dimensions, focusing on the circular passage of a pair of earrings.
Turn-of-the-century Europe is the ultimately melancholy setting for a complex play of eternal return, personalised memory, liquid camerawork and social dissection that is the quintessence of the director’s greatest work.
This absolute peak of Ophuls’ career features career-best performances by Danielle Darrieux, Charles Boyer and an impossibly sophisticated Vittorio De Sica.
