I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since it was included in the '1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die' list, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, eventually, I really liked it and I thought it was much more enjoyable than 'Lola Montès', another classic from Max Ophüls which I saw already twice.

In France of the late 19th century, the wife of a wealthy general, the Countess Louise, sells the earrings her husband gave her on their wedding day to pay off debts; she claims to have lost them. Her husband quickly learns of the deceit, which is the beginning of many tragic misunderstandings, all involving the earrings, the general, the countess, & her new lover, the Italian Baron Donati.

"1.1 Max Ophuls, 1953 The camerawork is phenomenal, everything is so well staged that everything is perfectly framed no matter how complicated the shot. Everything else is ok and the editing is a bit jank at times. "

"Nyt ollaan ancien regimen kaunopuheisuudelle ja valkoisille valheille perustuvan seurapiirileikin ytimessä. Ophulsin kamera vetelee ihastuttavia piruetteja tanssisalien peilien ja ikkunoiden kautta. Madame De-mikälie oli vituttava akka. Vittorio De Sicassa on tapsamaista epäreiluutta tavallista pulliaista kohtaan: suvereeni laulaja, näyttelijä ja ohjaaja on kaiken lisäksi perhanan komea ja hurmaava. Vasta ensimmäinen Ophulsini - häpeäkseni. En täysin lämmenyt näille suhdekiemuroille,"
