Max Ophüls Frankrike, 1955

Mark Ayala's rating of the film Lola Montès

Upon a second viewing, this film left me tremendously cold and empty compared to "La Ronde", "The Earrings of Madame De..." and "Letter from an Unknown Woman". It lacked their beautiful mix of sadness and joy. Maybe I'm missing something, but I plan on watching it again for a third time and to give the commentary a good listen to. I love Ophuls and felt awful that I didn't like this film as much as I wanted to.
