    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! 6 years 3 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. 4 years 5 months ago

    Ophuls films are so talky it's hard for non French speaking viewers to view the film. I enjoyed the last half hour though. 1 year 2 months ago
