The Earrings of Madame De... (Max Ophuls, France 1953) G 100 mins

The most cherished work from French master Max Ophuls, The Earrings of Madame de... is a profoundly emotional, cinematographically adventurous tale of deceptive opulence and tragic romance. When an aristocratic woman known only as Madame de... (Danielle Darrieux) sells a pair of earrings given to her by her husband (Charles Boyer) in order to pay some debts, she sets off a chain reaction of financial and carnal consequences that can end only in despair. Ophuls’s adaptation of Louise de Vilmorin’s incisive fin de siècle novel employs to ravishing effect the elegant and precise camera work for which the director is so justly renowned. “Max Ophüls excelled in creating the most heart-wrenching dramas wrapped up in the most glittery of surfaces. The Earrings of Madame de... could rate as one of the best of all time. - Melissa Anderson, Time Out, New York.
