‘The Earrings of Madame de…’ (1953) left me cold

Another day, another “all time great” French movie that didn’t live up to my expectations.

Had my expectations been lower, I may have been far more impressed. There certainly is a lot to admire here.

But I couldn’t help comparing it to …Colonel Blimp, another sweeping tale of social expectations and lost love — it even has a military setting and a “menage a trois” of sorts. Earrings… can’t compare.
