Le Plaisir


aka: House Of Pleasure
France 1952, 94 minutes
Dir. Max Ophuls
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Classics

Topics: Period - 1800s.


Aroview: Three tales by Guy de Maupassant go into this visually elegant treatise on the changing moods of love, youth and memory.

The most successful episode concerns the women of a brothel taking a country outing, while elsewhere the filmmaking mastery easily redeems any narrative shortcomings. Acclaimed by the likes of Godard, and starring the cream of French talent.
