Ne touchez pas la hache

Jacques Rivette France, 2007

David Ehrenstein's rating of the film The Duchess of Langeais

Back in the late 40's Max Ophuls planned a film of this Balzac novelle starring (wait for it!) Greta Garbo. He even had James Wong Howe shoot screen tests of the goddess. But he couldn't get anyone interested so she went back into retirement and he went to France ot make "La Ronde," "Le Plaisir," " Madame de. . ." and "Lola Montes."
