Monday, September 28

(1953, Max Ophuls) As a pair of diamond earrings pass from husband to madame to moneylender to husband to mistress to lover, fin de siècle high society is exposed amid Ophuls’ swirling camerawork, while “the performances by Danielle Darrieux as Madame De…, Charles Boyer as her husband, and Vittorio De Sica as her lover are quite likely the finest each has given (Pauline Kael).” Approx. 105 min. 35mm.
