Abstract:

Philandering concert pianist Stefan arrives home to find a letter which begins 'by the time you read this I might be dead'. So unfolds the story of Lisa, one of the many women he had shared a brief encounter over the years and swiftly forgotten. Her life had been spent loving him unflateringly and now he would learn the truth about his past. Set in the turn of the century Vienna, this haunting tale is perhaps cinema's greatest unrequited love story and is considered to be one of Ophul's great masterpieces.
