(OK) Pretty, really pretty, pure musical ballet almost going to abstraction; each tale is independent but has a romatic agonic feeling, as the doll torn to pieces or tge literally agonic singer...
View all The Tales of Hoffmann reviews
In this film adaptation of the Offenbach opera, a young poet named Hoffman broods over his failed romances. First, his affair with the beautiful Olympia is shattered when he realizes that she is really a mechanical woman designed by a scientist. Next, he believes that a striking prostitute loves him, only to find out she was hired to fake her affections by the dastardly Dapertutto. Lastly, a magic spell claims the life of his final lover.
Release date: 22 June 1951

Best Films of 1952 (25 movies items)

"One of Scorsese's favorite films, and it's understandable considering the similarities to the more exceptional 'The Red Shoes'. It's fine display of color and dance make it entertaining but it's difficult to watch a cinematic version of ballet nearly the entire time."
