Yet, apart from a self-consciously boisterous opening, I found the film moving.

Audience Reviews for The Constant Nymph

Very good. I hadn't seen a Peter Lorre film in awhile and although he is the supporting role here, he makes it a better one. Interesting interplay between Boyer and the two cousins...each seeking his heart. What decision will he make?
