What I like is that everyone is part of Danielle Darrieux's lie.


Film details

The Earrings of Madame de…
by Max Ophüls

Madame de... must settle her debts, so she sells the earrings that her husband General de... gave her to a jeweller, and then claims she has lost them. When the General learns of her deceit from the jeweller, he buys the earrings back and gives them to a mistress, who immediately sells them. Baron Donati acquires the baubles before falling in love with Madame de... and gives her the very same earrings as a token of his love. The blighted jewels bring only misfortune in their wake.
