Max and James and Danielle...2015

  • 3.7
Max Ophuls, James Mason and Danielle Darrieux: the legendary director and two of his favorite actors. Mason and Darrieux were each in several Ophuls projects but were never together in an Ophuls film (although they should have been). What might that movie have been like? It’s anybody’s guess. But cinephiles can dream, can’t they? Somewhere between a historical essay and a speculative one.

What if ...? What if Max Ophuls had directed a film with favorite thesps James Mason and Danielle Darrieux? I'm not sure the perspective is quite as fascinating as Mark Rappaport seems to think, but I was lured in anyway. Absolutely loved the sequence, in one of Rappaport famous parantheses, where he splits the screen between Mason and the lovely 1948 footage of the mature Garbo being tested on screen.
