An altogether classy affair from Max Ophuls, immaculately shot, intelligently written and featuring great performances from Charles Boyer as a possessive cold-hearted General and the very beautiful Danielle Darrieux as his manipulative wife who sells her husband's wedding gift of a pair of diamond earrings to clear her debts and increasingly gets caught up in her own lies when she falls in love with another man. Brilliant.
A great film. The most essential Ophuls.
Madame De...: The title of this movie, with the ellipses, is pronounced "Madame duuuuuuhh" (It's even spoken out loud during the film!)
