Letter From An Unknown Woman

BBBB.5

(out of 5)


One of ‘s best performances is in this plush melodrama by Max Ophuls. She goes from naïve girl to grown woman to ill-fated heroine, all under the nose of caddish , whom she loves but is never noticed by. She writes him a letter to tell him of the love affair between them that he has not been aware of, and the film is told in romantic flashbacks that deal with their sporadic encounters. Beautifully shot in dreamy black-and-white, this is three-hankie entertainment perfect for anyone looking for some good romance.
