A true classic - Madame De. review by PT

Spoiler Alert
19/10/2009

Regarded as one of best films ever made. A study of the upper classes and Madame De... in particular. This is cinema art at it's best. The cinematography is outstanding, long takes, sequence shots, Madame De passing behind objects as the camera still follows her, revealing the workings of her world in doing so. The ultra beautiful Danielle Darrieux gives one of cinemas most memorable performances in the title role, her magnetism is addictive. If you love art house cinema, this film is as the critics say, one of the best ever made. A MUST see for cinema buffs.
