French drama based on the novel by Louise de Vilmorin. The film revolves around an 18th century Countess (Danielle Darrieux) who sells off the earrings given to her as a wedding gift from her officer husband, in order to clear some debts. This action sets in motion a number of events that jeopardise her social position and threaten to destroy her marriage. Influential critic Andrew Sarris regarded Max Ophüls' elegant melodrama as the greatest film of all time.
