Simone Signoret, Anton Walbrook, and Simone Simon lead a roundelay of French stars in Max Ophuls's delightful, acerbic adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's controversial turn-of-thecentury play La Ronde. Soldiers, chambermaids, poets, andaristocrats, all are on equal footing in this multicharactermerry-go-round of love and infidelity, directed with asweeping gaiety as knowingly frivolous as it is enchantingand shot with Ophuls's trademark intricate cinematography.
