Breaking the fourth wall and directly addressing the cinema audience, the Raconteur (Anton Walbrook) acts as puppet master and chronicler for an elaborate, lively satire on sexual behavior that follows lovers and the loveless in majestic Viennese manors. This avant-garde film by director Max Ophüls started an often-imitated cinematic style; Simone Simon, Simone Signoret, and Danielle Darrieux also star. 93 min. Standard; Soundtrack: French Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; audio commentary; interviews; more. In French with English subtitles.
