A welcome re-release of Max Ophuls's 1953 drama based on the novel by Louise de Vilmorin. Comtesse Louise (Danielle Darrieux), the wife of General Andre (Charles Boyer), has amassed considerable debts through her lavish lifestyle and she decides to settle some of these arrears by selling diamond earrings, which were a wedding present from her husband. The jeweller contacts the General and offers to sell him back the jewels, and he in turns gifts them to his mistress Lola (Lia Di Leo), who is leaving for Constantinople and will therefore not cross paths with Louise. However, Lola also sells the earrings and an Italian diplomat, Baron Fabrizio Donati (Vittorio De Sica), buys the gems. He happens to cross paths with Louise and becomes enchanted by her, sparking a potential affair, which arouses the suspicions and jealousy of the General.
