Max Ophul’s poignant tale of adultery, passion and power.
Dir Max Ophuls
With Charles Boyer, Danielle Darrieux, Vittorio De Sica
‘Ophuls catches us up in the restless flow of his images... The gliding rhythm of his films is romantic, seductive, and, at times, almost hypnotic,’ wrote Kael. Rating as perfect this poignant tale of adultery, passion and power, Kael was taken by Ophuls’ style, which displayed great beauty and deep meaning: ‘the director moves so fast that the suggestions, the feelings, must be caught on the wing.’
