Chicago Reader review:
One of my all-time favorites (1948), a breathtaking, bitter, exquisitely orchestrated exploration of love and selfishness by Max Ophuls. Joan Fontaine has never been better or lovelier, as she masterfully incarnates the young girl whose lifelong infatuation with a gifted, callow concert pianist (Louis Jourdan) leads to great sorrow. A graceful and ironic film that never once falls captive to its own cliches.
