It is set in a fin-de-siècle Europe that resembles a dollhouse come to life: Every element of the decor seems to have been fetishized before it was built. Yet unlike most historical romances, the sets don’t suffocate the drama—in fact, they underscore the film’s tragic dimension.

There’s a reason Ophüls’s beautiful, technically astounding tracking shots are so well remembered: They embody the sadness of the simplest truth that nothing lasts, no matter how desperately we may attempt to plan for otherwise, no matter how aggressively we may try to cast ourselves as masters of our own domain.

There are some movies that are so perfect, so exquisitely beautiful, so effortlessly elegant, they’re almost painful. Like watching an overwhelmingly enchanting dancer — their beauty cracks something inside of you… The pain of manipulating those graceful muscles, and in the case of Madame de…, the pain of that shambolic muscle called the heart, reveals what threatens to stain one’s resplendently spotless satin and silk — blood-red, human deception and guilt.

  • SpacePirate's rating of the film Madame de...

    Beautiful film. Great plot, superb acting by Boyer, De Sica, and the lovely Darrieux, and a tragic final act. I just loved this film, hard to say more. Ophuls created a masterpiece here, with the great use of tracking shots and the pacing throughout. Methinks Orson saw this before making Touch of Evil. All the accolades have already been said. All I can add is after seeing this and La Ronde, I must see more. 5 stars.

  • Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Madame de...

    It takes considerable skill to feel touched by the laughably ornate romantic entrapments of the most decadently wealthy and materialistic people. The dancing scenes are like magic in their mobility and effortlessly elegant movement, the camera simply gliding and floating with precision and a looseness that makes you forget that there even is a camera. Masterful filmmaking here

  • A47's rating of the film Madame de...

    "I detest the whole world. i want to be seen by you and you alone." And I want nothing more as the viewer to look at her face. That is the genius of this movie... A plot pinned together by earrings. Not even Tolstoy could pull that off.

  • Renton47's rating of the film Madame de...

    Very much on board for its aesthetic pleasures, but Madame also leaves you with something to grapple with, the sense it is keeping something at an emotional distance. Precisely because the characters are so liberated it needs to work harder to convince us of the romance, so is its opulence a condemnation? The feeling of levity, beauty, warmth, silliness and cruelty all works to make it so compelling.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Madame de...

    The premise of an object (jewellery) as a motif and catalyst in multiple contexts to reveal the infidelities and tragedies of a variety of characters echoes the fall from grace of societal elites in Renoir's 'La Regle du Jeu'. One can empathise more with these humane if trivial protagonists. Ophüls has a skill in making you care for characters who may be unlikeable on paper.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Madame de...

    Anchored by august performances, "The Earrings of Madame De…" is a phenomenal and sophisticated masterclass in filmmaking, featuring some of the best camerawork and stage direction in the history of cinema. Much in the vein of Orson Welles and Douglas Sirk, Max Ophuls lets the set pieces create the melodrama while ably using the exquisite dialogue to create a claustrophobic succession of impeding doom.

  • Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Madame de...

    Rich and sumptuous melodrama about a Countess who sells a pair of earrings to cover a debt, telling her husband a little white lie to hide her small shame, and in the process sets off a domino effect as the earrings continue to come back to haunt her, trapping her in a web of her own lies. Opulent and brilliantly scripted, the film is a profound reflection on inescapable consequences of dishonesty.

  • HSBilly's rating of the film Madame de...

    experienced performance by the earrings for the love tale of neorealism director and the woman with no last name (surely its not a gunslinger name)
