    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. 11 years 9 months ago

    A great film. The most essential Ophuls. 10 years 9 months ago

    What a boring set of characters. No wonder Oscar Wilde was constantly making fun of the high society of his times. 12 years 2 months ago
