    Brilliant masterpiece from Max Ophüls! Beautiful actress Martine Carol in a splendid visually sumptuous film! A story of a real life cabaret dancer and her affairs, including Franz Liszt and Ludwig I of Bavaria. Superb! 7 years 7 months ago

    Interesting concept (circus scenes introducing flashbacks) but I just can't get into it. Maybe I need to be in a better mood. 5 years 9 months ago

    The wooden performance is very much a part of the magic.
