Le Plaisir Film Poster


Max Ophüls' portmanteau drama features his trademark intricate camera movement, and is said to be one of Jean-Luc Godard's favourite films. Three stories revolve around the film's titular theme: pleasure. In 'Le Masque', an old man dons a magic mask and becomes young again. In 'La Maison Tellier', a prostitute enjoys a moment of true romance, whilst in 'Le Modèle', an artist's model marries the man who saves her from suicide.
