Letter from an Unknown Woman

United States | 1948 | Max Ophuls

Letter from an Unknown Woman

Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdan star in the best American film by the great Max Ophuls (Madame de…, Lola Montes). Set in 19th-century Vienna, the movie follows a young woman with a lifelong crush on her concert pianist neighbor. But he sees her as nothing but a potential conquest. Opulent settings, beautiful lighting, and elaborate and expressive camera movements elevate this romantic “weepie” to the level of sublime cinema. “Of all the cinema’s fables of doomed love, none is more piercing than this.” –Time Out Film Guide.
