Audience Reviews for Liebelei

  • Jul 10, 2011
    Ophüls masterpiece before exiting Germany, set in the turn-of-the-century Vienna, in which love and "liebelei" are the main recipe. This brilliant introspective work assigns a great relevance on the emotions and inner thoughts of the characters. Scenes consist in close-ups, landscapes speaking that which characters can't put into words, and prolonged shots of the facial expressions of the characters while they are being told something, while we wait for some kind of response from them, like watching someone in the face without blinking. 99/100

    a fine early work of max ophuls, before he fled germany and the rise of the nazis. the archetypal romantic tear jerker has some beautiful scenes and displays many of ophuls' trademarks. with a charming lead performance by magda schneider, the mother of romy, who would herself play the part in 1958 remake of the film called 'christine' opposite young alain delon. ophuls himself also reshot the film in french using most of the original cast and retitled une histoire d'amour. as in most cases, the original is best
