Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Madame De... [DVD] (DVD)
Superlative direction with performances to match in this disarming tale about the bourgeoisie and what shallow lives they lead.A countess parts with a set of earrings to pay off a debt little realising the consequences on her life and that of others as we follow the earrings on their trail of destruction.Highly stylised with some dazzling tracking shots this is almost the definition of romantic cinema.

So if the film's so outstanding, what's up with the rating of four instead of five? Are we to believe it could be bettered? Anyone who has seen the film knows the answer: the film is perfect as it is, a gem among gems.

Thanks for comment Doug;probably should have given it 5.Didn't even know this facility was here until 5 minutes ago so here's back at ya- you review it and give it 5.
Didn't realise my reviews were so short back in 07- much more pompous and long winded now.
