  1. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film La ronde

    Sublime. A good contender for the greatest ensemble cast in cinema history. Each performance is a marvel, while the music, art direction and cinematography are perfection. As for the director...

  2. bryanvmh's rating of the film La ronde

    Less explicit than Vadim's version, the consistent fourth-wall-breaking of the narrator (God?) initially rubbed me the wrong way, but then all of the circular pieces started to fit together just like in Demy's sublime Lola

  3. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film La ronde

    Very modern, interesting structure, in a way resembles Alice in the Wonderland. So much sex without any sex.

  4. steeeeellaaaaa (Iulia N)'s rating of the film La ronde

    Weirdly sexual for a 50's movie, which makes it even better now

  5. glhrmefc's rating of the film La ronde

    Some parts are funny,romantic, and there are others that are not fun or romantic enough. the romance carousel ends up becoming a roller coaster of ups and downs

  6. Gustavo Leitão's rating of the film La ronde

    Quite daring foray into the sensual realm masterfully directed. It's not love we're talking about, it's that underground river called sex, which runs below society's norms. Ophüls takes the carousel image to show the transient nature of desire, using lavish sets and a constantly moving camera. You can feel the lovers heat although very little action is shown.

  7. Ma-rewind's rating of the film La ronde

    Vu au cinéma en version restaurée... Ce film est tout bonnement MAGIQUE! Quel casting, quel humour.. Et Walbrook....Je fonds!

  8. Nachtreich's rating of the film La ronde

  9. jehki's rating of the film La ronde

    Half painful, half brilliant, a beautiful film.

  10. redux's rating of the film La ronde

    Prescient nouvelle vague ripples on a stale creamcake.

  11. 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.

  12. dionysus67's rating of the film La ronde

    One of Ophuls' best films, this one revels in the artificiality of love, beautifully depicted through a circular structure of storytelling and puncutated by the narrator's modernist device of the mechanical references to the carousel. This contrast (love's purity vs. mechanical artificiality/social roles) is captured by the exquisite and crystalline cinematography of C.Matras. Glittering!

  14. 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

  15. FISCHER's rating of the film La ronde

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

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

    Light, but a great showcase of French film stars.

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

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

  18. LauraPalmer's rating of the film La ronde

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

  20. 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.

  21. Aardsy's rating of the film La ronde

    Turns out both love and infidelity are boring.

  22. 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.
