Sixth cinema lesson by Alain Garel this year at Protected content , with the screening of the French-Italian film MADAME DE… of Max Ophuls.
Before the lesson, we will see the movie :)

Synopsis: Frivolous wife, coquette and spender of a wealthy general aristocrat, Louise, having a desperate need of money in order to repay her debts, resolves to sell some of her jewels... which provoques many tragicomic "quiproquos".

Third of four films shot in France by Max Ophuls after his post-war American exile and before his death, Madame de… , which adapts a short novel by Louise de Vilmorin, constitutes, with La Ronde, after Arthur Schnitzler, Le Plaisir, after Guy de Maupassant, and Lola Montès after Cécil Saint-Laurent, a tetralogy having for subject love, love in all its forms: passion, conjugal, mercantile. “Grand Master of the Moving Analytical Plan”, as Stanley Kubrick admired him, the filmmaker reached the pinnacle of his craft.
