Max Ophüls: A Tribute

A filmmaker with a unique, inventive, and daring voice

Max Ophüls is considered to be one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. A filmmaker with a unique, inventive, and daring voice, who created bitter-sweet works that centered, for the most part, on female characters and their struggles against social constraints. 

There’s No Tomorrow

Dir.: Max Ophüls
| 82 minutes

A woman, trying to provide for her young son, is forced to become a cabaret dancer. The reappearance of an ex-lover and the yearning to fulfill youthful emotions push her to lend money. A melodrama that is largely a prelude to what Ophüls will later do in Hollywood.

La ronde

Ten episodes linked by a puppet master narrator in which the protagonists ride a sexual merry-go-round in the 19th century, with one partner always connecting to the next story. Ophüls’ witty adaptation of the Arthur Schnitzler play is a gratifying film.
