The Earrings of Madame De
Genre:Art/Foreign
Year:1953
Rating:?
Length:95 min
Country:France
Cast:Danielle Darrieux, Charles Boyer, Vittorio de Sica
Credits:Directed by Max Ophuls

Regarded by critic Andrew Sarris as the greatest film of all time, based on the romantic novel by Louise de Vilmorin, the film transcends the literary text through a complex mise-en-scene designed by one of the most sophisticated cineastes of modern time. Ophuls reincarnates Vilmorin's chaste prose into a dazzling visual symphony, composing a remarkable visual portrait of the vanity and frivolity of the lives of the main character, Madame De... and her lover, especially in the sequences in which the camera elegantly moves through the space.
