The Earrings of Madame de...1953

The most cherished work from French master Max Ophuls is a profoundly emotional, cinematographically adventurous tale of deceptive opulence and tragic romance. When an aristocratic woman known only as Madame de... sells a pair of earrings given to her by her husband in order to pay some debts, she sets off a chain reaction of financial and carnal consequences that can end only in despair. Ophuls' 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.

Ravishing in the Ophuls manner. A contrived and gimmicky plot does not impede the emotional force Ophuls conjures.
