La ronde by Max Ophuls( Visual )

77 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La ronde translates as 'The round' which can refer to the policeman's beat, a circle of dancers, or a carousel, all of which this circular collection of interconnected short stories resembles. Each scene is built around a specific pair, and when one member of the pair breaks away from his or her lover, he or she then moves on to the next, introducing the partner that will lead on to the next pair, and so on until we are back where we started. Many of these lovers are seeking something they've lost in arms that look familiar but that belong to strangers. La ronde is the bittersweet note sounded by the circular nostalgia of the heart

22 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in French and English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An adaptation of three ironic short stories by Guy de Maupassant ostensibly linked by a common theme: the paradoxical deceptions of pleasure. The first story, Le Masque, contrasts pleasure and old age in the story of an old man so addicted to dancing that he wears a mask to disguise his age. The second story, Le Modele, opposes pleasure and marriage. A young painter has an affair with his model, which after her attempted suicide ends with their marriage. The third, La Maison Tellier, is virtually a short feature. Pleasure and purity are opposed as the inmates of a city brothel spend a day in the country attending the first communion of the madame's niece

Sexual difference in European cinema : the curse of enjoyment by Fabio Vighi( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What can European cinema tell us about sexual difference? Can film shed some light on Lacan's infamous thesis that 'there is no such thing as a sexual relationship? Fabio Vighi argues that cinema is the ideal medium to unravel not only Lacan's theory of sexuality, but also its social and political implications. This book brings together cinematic fiction and psychoanalysis to identify the repressed kernel that structures our experience as subjects immersed in a specific socio-symbolic context. The filmic representation of sexual difference provides here the key paradigm to unravel the discrepancy and interconnections between reality and the Real of enjoyment. Vighi examines a number of seminal works in post-war European cinema from two main perspectives: the masculine logic of courtly love, and feminine enjoyment. Inspired by Slavoj Zizek's reading of Lacan, the book analyses directors such as Fellini, Truffaut, Antonioni, Bergman, Ophuls, Rossellini, Bunuel, Rohmer, Fassbinder and many others."--Jacket

Romantische komedie
Max Ophüls' Liebelei 1932( Visual )

2 editions published in 1996 in German and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tragic romance set among the noble classes of 19th century Vienna, Liebelei showcases legendary director Max Ophüls’ (Letter From an Unknown Woman, The Earrings of Madame de ..., La Ronde) signature themes of love and death, as well as his wonderfully fluid visual style. In the wake of his loveless affair with a beautiful baroness, Fritz (Wolfgang Liebeneiner), a handsome lieutenant of the mounted Dragoons, becomes enamored with Christine (Magda Schneider*), the daughter of a middle-class musician. Christine's innocence and trust inspire Fritz to reform his philandering ways – the purity of their love eloquently represented by the majestic, snow-blanketed Semmering forests through which they sleigh. But when the jealous Baron Eggersdorf (Gustaf Gründgens) learns of his wife's past indiscretions, he challenges the young officer to a duel, threatening to end the idyllic romance of Fritz and Christine before it can truly begin. The survival of Liebelei is a minor miracle. For years, the film was suppressed from exhibition – and the negative destroyed – by the Nazi party due to Liebelei's criticism of military codes of honor and the Jewish background of Ophüls, Millakowsky and playwright Arthur Schnitzler (who also wrote Reigen, which Ophüls would later bring to the screen as La Ronde). In this carefully-prepared edition, mastered from one of the very few original prints known to exist, the sparse original subtitles are supplemented bynewly-translated text. In spite of some choppiness in the source copy, the film maintains cinematographer Franz Planer's lustrous sheen reminiscent of Ophüls’ later work
