Max Ophüls Frankrike, 1955

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Lola Montès

A gorgeous mise en scene and heady colour palette are the chief delights - if not raison d’etre - for viewing this otherwise stiff narrative cadaver which offers little tangible insight into the motivations or mores of Montes. The episodic structure doesn’t help and one leaves the film elated by it’s exquisite art direction but little else, although the freak show exploitation is rather chilling.
