  1. daxterpt999's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    Ironic, maintaining a distance and yet managing the impossible: falling in no cynicism, a camera floating like air imposing no winning morals. I suspect that the last shot is flawed, however.

  3. mubianer's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    After becoming seriously interested in what they call "serious films" about 15 years ago film critic Derek Malcolm's list of his 100 favourites became my bible (I met him at a festival once, he had lots of good anecdotes). This is one of the few I hadn't seen, before today. But of course, since then, I have discovered many more lists of films to watch. It's never ending.

  4. Traum Baum's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    A pair of earrings embarks on a semiotic journey, circulating back and forth and back and forth until its transformation from commodity fetish to fetish-object/signifier of desire is completed.

  5. cineholic's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    10/10. What starts as a petty menage a trois devolves into dark, emotional tragedy. Precise camera moves and beautiful production design. I didn't realize that Da Sica acted, but his performance as the interloping baron is quite charming.

  7. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    What a great prequel film to The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

  8. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    I managed to miss literally the last minute of the film, so I don't think i got the entierty of the emotional punch.

  9. captainfez's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    The world turns upon a par of earrings.

  10. Superfrog's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    I am not one for melodramatic romance, but the excellent photography, lighting and text; together with a fast paced script makes this a little gem !

  11. Quattro's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    Impeccable, a classic plot directed and performed with great elegance and attention to detail. Can't say I was caught up in it very much, though.

  12. Durandré's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    Brillant ! un bijou, si j'ose dire.

  13. Pierre.F's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    Une performance géniale de Danielle Darrieux et un film inoubliable d'Ophuls. C'est filmé tout en travelling, la mise en scène est réglée avec une grande maîtrise. Les personnages oscillent sans cesse entre la frivolité et la gravité, de même que les boucles d'oreille circulent entre toutes les mains sans appartenir à personne.

  14. bartkl's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    I wasn't immediately taken by the style of this film, because some elements of it reeked of the early 50s. However, as the movie advanced I was very impressed with Ophüls's creative ability to make the earrings the movie's star. And then there is the magnificent ending, which is simply amazing and washes away any sour taste one could've gotten during the first half of the film. Certainly very nice!

  15. Renightz's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    The cinema of Max Ophüls is definitely not for the faint of heart. Through his masterful camerawork - and a clever use of a McGuffin -, the german director operates in a spiritual level of filmmaking and "The Earrings of Madame De...", elevated by the superb performances and the beautiful soundtrack, hits the heart like a bullet like all of his movies.

  16. Scott's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    The titular earrings act as an object of transference in a morally complex tale of devotion. The most compelling scenes have an absorbing duality between hushed intimacy of love and the roar of public life. It's a beautiful, flowing film that feels far ahead of its time.

  17. azoulay's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    Le génie de Max Ophüls et un trio fascinant d'acteurs dont une Danielle Darrieux touchée par la grâce, réussit à faire de ce film un chef d'oeuvre D'une histoire anecdotique au ressort redondant il trace une oeuvre "Flaubertienne".Le boulversement de cette'histoire mondaine en tragédie, s'imprime sur les visages sublimes de Darrieux et deDe Sicca. Darrieux, mal aimée du cinéma français est pourtant ici grandiose.

  19. AnneFran's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    Un film éblouissant. Et la plus belle déclaration d'amour du cinéma. Ces "Je ne vous aime pas" éperdus qui restent en mémoire.

  20. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    A stonking great melodrama, but a quite magnificent one, of a dalliance that turns fatal as it becomes a true love affair. Droll too: 'During the Lisbon earthquake she was unconscious for 20 minutes' 'That's some consolation'.

  21. Ethan's rating of the film The Earrings of Madame de...

    This is a true masterpiece and one of the most beautiful films ever made.

  22. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Earrings of 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.
