Frances H (jp) wrote: Kubrick's films are always extremely thought-provoking, and this one is no exception, but Schnitzler's novella doesn't translate easily to modern day New York from turn-of the-century Vienna, with the outrage of Victorian middle class morality to the sexual interpretation Freud put on the forbidden fantasies of dreams as a result of sexual repression. The sexual revolution of the 1960s and 70s makes these scenes of orgies and the need for secrecy about them seem rather nonsensical in modern society, where weekend frat parties are just about as bad, certainly nothing worth potentially murdering to keep secret. The connection of sex and darkness, sex and death makes some sense, because of the introduction into the story of HIV, although in Schnitzler's time before antibiotics general disease was just as much of a risk. In 1900's Vienna, the issues of the plot are also in connection with anti-Semitism (Schnitzler, like Freud, was Jewish) and the sense of a dark future coming is seen by history to come to fruition. The sense of doom in the original work is echoed in other Jewish writer's of the time, such as Kafka That sense of doom translates somewhat to the AIDS epidemic, but it is a harder sell. Taking a literary work so far out of its time period is difficult, and in this case, although interesting, not as entirely successful as other Kubrick films, although Kubrick is always intellectually stimulating.

It's an emotional journey worthy of a few tissues but when you've been to enough film festivals it feels kind of played out.

Jon C (gb) wrote: Classic romantic tragedyAll the qualities of director Max Ophul's genius -- elegant stylishness, refined irony, meticulous construction of class milieu, and exceptionally fluid camera work -- are on full display in The Earrings of Madame de ..., which many consider his greatest work. This story of an innocent flirtation which turns into an obsessive spiritual adultery features the powerhouse ensemble acting of Charles, Boyer, Danielle Darieux, and Vittorio De Sica (later to gain fame as a director himself), all of whom are perfectly cast and bring immense subtlety to their roles. The atmosphere of old-world upper-class decadence has rarely been created so effectively on the screen. All that being said, this film isn't for everyone: some may consider it slow-moving and soap-opera like. But if grand tragic aristocratic romance appeals to you, or if you're seriously interested in cinema and want to see a master film-maker's technique at its peak, then this will be a must-see. In black and white, but so well photographed that you hardly miss the color. No advisories, but children won't be interested. I saw this in the Criterion standard DVD box which has an excellent DVD transfer with an interesting booklet included. In French, with English subtitles. I assume the new Blu-Ray has the same features, and it would be better to watch that one if you have a Blu-Ray player.
