Excellent analysis of a character transformation. The scenes created in a way that you see the big transformation of Madame de... Also scenes were extremely beautiful, especially dance scenes. Camera were working brilliantly.

Ophuls was a film maker of such tremendous skill that his prodigious storytelling gifts are frequently overlooked. His much lauded tracking shots demonstrate his complete mastery of movement, but they aren't simply virtuosic displays of pure technique. The ballroom sequences, for example, are masterclasses in how to develop narrative, theme and character in both subtle and obvious ways. In Madame De, opulence leads to imprisonment, and Darrieux is unforgettable as Louise. Beautiful and tragic.

The premise of a general living in obscene wealth, bickling with others over various conventions and meanings tied to earrings, must have made Bunnuel smile, particularly in the beginning, but also Kubrick, who too would later go on to make a similarly inspired Barry Lyndon.

This didn't grab me as much as Lola Montes did (probably because it lacks that film's dazzling technicolor spectacle) but it's still charming and elegant and beautifully shot of course (Ophuls' characters say "ravishing" a lot and they could easily be alluding to their surroundings). In both films the characters and their drama can almost get lost within all the opulent set design, but in Lola Montes this at least felt thematically appropriate (playing into history as theatrical performance).

The movie tries to give us a sense of the disappearance of the gentry in France. Louise tries to act like the old contesses who could flirt with any man as long as they were gentleman, but her husband is a lord who shows inclinations of transformation to bourgeoisie (he searchs the earrings like mad), and hence he cares for his wife like a bourgeois tradesman cares, i.e. like a product. At the end, earring as a symbol of aristocracy becomes obsolete and is donated to church because it's useless.

Aristocrats having balls, the camera going round and round, swooning, intrigues, gentlemanly pistol duels. To me this is as stuffy as your grandma's perfume.

The way the layers of this story gradually unfold is masterful to watch. Revolving around a simple piece of jewelry, the love triangle that spans differing aristocratic classes builds to a triumphant and tragic conclusion. It is meticulously directed and acted and never feels melodramatic, each moment hitting elegantly and effectively.

Essentially, the best explanation of why money can't buy happiness. The sets, the characters and even Max Ophuls' grandiose camera movements are indicative of a seemingly unattainable amount of opulence. I think the wealth on display in this film has a lot to do with how powerful it ultimately is, as these characters are rich but lose it all.

TSPDT #121. the way the earrings are passed through many hands, manipulate various relationships and become a symbol of different meanings for different people is well-handled and interesting. though i have to admit i can't detect much of the rich subtext that many others have discovered beneath its magnificent surface, and this sort of upper-class love triangle is never going to ensnare my attention on its own. but yes. it is beautifully designed and intriguing to follow.

Elegant and distancing, but an excellently crafted film. It's difficult to pinpoint why it didn't entirely suck me in, and PT Anderson almost had me on his side with his short talk on the DVD about it, but I didn't entirely connect. It may be one of those films that gets better in memory the longer it settles.

One of those movies from the classic era that is so smooth, so ironed out. Nothing out of place, everything part of a cohesive unity.

An elegantly filmed and thought-provoking romantic drama that features some brilliant cinematography. Each scene is meticulously crafted and executed in the most visually satisfying way possible. Featuring an engaging story, exceptional camerawork, and great performances, The Earrings of Madame De... is a must-watch masterpiece. Ophuls is a master and this is one of his best.
