Aro Recommended Madame De...

 

aka: Earrings Of Madame De..., The
France 1953, 96 minutes
Dir. Max Ophuls
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Classics / Romance

Topics: Period - 1700s.

 

Aroview: Widely considered one of the dir.'s peak achievements, this gracefully and ironically traces a doomed menage-a-trois in 18th century France, where the superficiality of society life frustrates the passions aroused in lovers Danielle Darrieux and Vittorio De Sica, and cuckold Charles Boyer. As ever, the camerawork is elaborately fluid though unobtrusive.
