Le Plaisir


Dir. Max Ophüls (1952) Adapting three stories by Guy de Maupassant, Ophüls treats the author’s theme of human vanity with greater empathy than the original. Stanley Kubrick once claimed this 1952 film to be his favorite; with Ophüls’s signature bravura camerawork, it’s easy to see why.
