4.0 out of 5 stars Revenge story that is beguiling as it is heavy, 28 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne [1945] [DVD] (DVD)
There's a certain languor to this flick that puts one in mind of the odour of lillies. A woman scorned plots to destroy her former lover by inducing him to fall in love with a dancing girl, whom he is made to believe is chaste and pure. The cunning plan works itself out in a way that is inevitable and saddening, but there is truth and subtlety to the feelings of the characters and the performances of the actors. All the same, the vampish protagonist and the ill-fated girl she makes into her tool are by the far the most vivid protagonists; I found the lovesick man quite uninteresting. I suspect the director is more interested in themes than personalities.
