Chéri eine Komödie der Eitelkeiten ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eine alternde Belle-Epoque-Kurtisane soll aus dem verwöhnten Sohn einer Kollegin einen Mann machen. Aus der arrangierten Liaison entwickelt sich eine über Jahre andauernde Liebesbeziehung, der die Zweckehe des Liebhabers mit einer reichen Braut ein Ende setzt, ohne dass die Liebenden innerlich voneinander loskommen. Die opulent und mit hervorragenden Darstellern umgesetzte Literaturverfilmung zeichnet als elegant-scharfzüngige Gesellschaftskomödie die porträtierte Halbwelt als parodistischen Spiegel der "besseren Gesellschaft" und ihrer Werte. Zugleich verfolgt sie mit Momenten großer Poesie und Melancholie die Tragödie der Hauptfiguren, deren Gefühle und Sehnsüchte im Tanz auf dem gesellschaftlichen Parkett auf der Strecke bleiben.
