  3. jehki's rating of the film La ronde

    Half painful, half brilliant, a beautiful film.

  4. redux's rating of the film La ronde

    Prescient nouvelle vague ripples on a stale creamcake.

  5. luís debonoir's rating of the film La ronde

    Truly a carousel of the little deviations and expectations of love, presented as a succession of short episodes among the characters in intimate settings. I always got the feeling of being an invisible observer of those private dialogues. The camera work is excellent with some little details in the shots and movement (the bedroom shot with the colck comes to mind). A great tale, in a magical and idealistic ambience.

  7. SpacePirate's rating of the film La ronde

    Great fun. Loved Walbrook's Godlike character, with all the fourth wall breaking and general tongue in cheekery, as well as the simple plot. Ophuls shows his talent well here and fills La Ronde with about as much love and lust that could pass the censorship board in those days. A film more open about promiscuity I have yet to run across from the era. If you like this, seek out his others. Ophuls was a master. 5 stars

    Un indéniable chef-d'oeuvre ! www.cinefiches.com

  9. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film La ronde

    Light, but a great showcase of French film stars.

  10. Francesca Gavin's rating of the film La ronde

    Max Ophuls is an utter genius. Charming, intimate, ever re watchable.

  11. LauraPalmer's rating of the film La ronde

  12. Chihao Tsang's rating of the film La ronde

  13. Car01a's rating of the film La ronde

    Lovely narrative tricks and an extra diegetic dimension in this love story of all humanity: how people of all walks of life find ways to love one another despite social barriers and expectations.

  14. Aardsy's rating of the film La ronde

    Turns out both love and infidelity are boring.

  15. Lior1209's rating of the film La ronde

    Dunno, I probably need to watch it again sometime. Those fin-de-siecle bourgeois dramedies don't do much for me (unless they're called The Rules of the Game), and the plot here feels very convoluted and I must say I did find it slightly dull at spots. Funny and charming, but Ophüls had much better films than this.

  16. RoRoRoro's rating of the film La ronde

  17. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film La ronde

    4.5 questo film volteggia senza mai toccare terra

  18. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film La ronde

    Pas mal de poésie et de modernité dans le récit. REGGIANI et GELIN très bons. Pas trop de rides ce film, malgré ses 66 ans.

  19. Chilton's rating of the film La ronde

  20. Warren Spratley's rating of the film La ronde

    A strange Ophuls. In a sense, this is as pure a representation of the Ophulsian metaphysic as any film he ever made. The director is clearly fully engaged w/ the material. But there is something quite unpleasant about Walbrook's authorial position, his intrusions. Even more, the theme of the persistence of transient passion becomes tiresome, redundant. Still, the prostitute/count scene is Ophuls at his very best.

  21. Oliver Page's rating of the film La ronde

  22. Max Seqgar's rating of the film La ronde

    Pour l'amour de l'art de l'amour! For further enjoyment, read Barthe's Discourse of a Lover: Fragments.

  23. Comadozer's rating of the film La ronde

    Beautifully controlled, the carousel and the song ingeniously intertwine the narratives.

  24. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film La ronde

    Max Ophuls is the man!!! When your heros (Paul Thomas Anderson&Wes Anderson) mention him as an influence, you are obliged to check it out. Now i want to watch everything directed by him. And this film has everything i like about art - its aware of the fact that it is a spectacle thanks to the witty omniscient narrator who informs us from the beginning that he know it all but still sustains our interest.
