Where are we going?
“Lola Montes” is a film about movement in every way. The famous tracking shots, so widely written about, are absolutely necessary here and in Max Ophuls’ direction reached an apogee. They dominate such different story lines as “Le plaisir”, “Madame De…”, “Liebelei” and the rest but here the subject is motion – a life in perpetual, ceaseless motion. Actually this motive was appealing to Ophuls in general – lost earrings, the dance of the masked man and down the line -but here it uses a life as its opening premise. Actually the film is not really concerned with the title character as with the men whose lives it touches. In that capacity Martine Carol fulfills her role quite adequately. There’s not much to see in Lola – she is portrayed in two dimensions throughout the film and her character was never intended to come to life. The men around her, on the other hand, are a wonderful lot with totally different responses to Lola’s seductiveness and this is at the core of the film. The colors of the circus are fabulous and the season’s of Lola’s life depicted in some of the most sophisticated color schemes I’ve ever encountered. The wintry blues and whites in the palace with the snow depict the end of one man’s life while the autumnal shades of her affair with Liszt were breath-taking. Someone reported that Phuls had actually painted the ground around the carriage to simulate the end of an affair. My only objection in the entire film is George Auric’s overuse of his beautiful opening music at the film’s beginning. It outlasted its welcome, unfortunately. This is a great film and fitting end to a remarkable career by yet another – Max Ophuls.
