Lola Montès (1955)

Lola Montes, previously a great adventurer, is reduced to being the attraction of a circus after having been the lover of various important men.


Brilliant masterpiece from Max Ophüls! Beautiful actress Martine Carol in a splendid visually sumptuous film! A story of a real life cabaret dancer and her affairs, including Franz Liszt and Ludwig I of Bavaria. Superb!

Interesting concept (circus scenes introducing flashbacks) but I just can't get into it. Maybe I need to be in a better mood.

The wooden performance is very much a part of the magic.
