La Ronde

97 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 1950 | dir. Max Ophuls, with Simone Signoret, Anton Walbrook, Serge Reggiani, Simone Simon

Simone Signoret, Anton Walbrook, and Simone Simon lead a roundelay of French stars in Max Ophuls’s delightful, acerbic adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler’s controversial turn-of-the-century play Reigen. Soldiers, chambermaids, poets, prostitutes, aristocrats—all are on equal footing in this multicharacter merry-go-round of love and infidelity, directed with a sweeping gaiety as knowingly frivolous as it is enchanting, and shot with Ophüls’s trademark mellifluous cinematography. La Ronde was awarded the BAFTA for Best Film in 1952.

The film will be screened on a rare 35mm print
