Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria (Omar Sharif) clashes with his father, Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria (James Mason), over implementing progressive policies for their country. Ava Gardner plays his mother Empress Elisabeth. Rudolf soon feels he is a man born at the wrong time in a country that does not realize the need for social reform. The Prince of Wales (James Robertson Justice), later to become Britain's King Edward VII, provides comic relief. Rudolf finds refuge from a loveless marriage with Princess Stéphanie (Andréa Parisy) by taking a mistress, Baroness Maria Vetsera (Catherine Deneuve). Their untimely demise at Mayerling, the imperial family's hunting lodge, is cloaked in mystery, but the film's ending suggests the two lovers made a suicide pact when they decided they could not live in a world without love or prospects for peace.

E acho que nesse caso seriam as duas opes.A diretora, Olga Stolpovskaja, usou um tipo de cmera para diferentes tomadas, junto com a trilha sonora tambm, passando um sentimento de confuso e curiosidade. Mas o roteiro o ponto forte do filme: confuso e engraado.Ento, no s por ser da Rssia e tratar de um tema to restrito por l, como tambm a maneira de contar a histria e lidar com os personagens (to nicos e caractersticos), que me agradou.Uma tima experincia pra quem quer tentar um cinema gay sem clichs.

David L (de) wrote: Nights of Cabiria has its problems mainly the problematic ending and Masina's frequent overacting, but this is mostly an engaging and well crafted work filled with such a nice tone to it, fine cinematography, mostly good acting, evident heart and some really powerful, moving sequences. It is a flawed, but still quite a good movie that is easily the director's finest work.
