  • "When it comes to matters of infidelity, everyone is considered an equal, whether it's a soldier, a maid, or an aristocrat in 1900's Vienna."
  • "Max Ophuls legendary film satire is a carnival of sexual and sensual behaviour done with taste, frank sophistication and brilliant humour. Showing the interconnecting relationships between men and women, Ophuls highlights the transience of pleasure and the Precariousness of happiness. LA RONDE opens with the meeting of a young girl and a soldier, and goes full circle to end with a meeting between a Hussar and the same young girl. A film full of humour and tenderness."
  • "A series of love affairs take place in Vienna in 1900."
  • "A young girl and a soldier meet, but it is only after a full circle of interconnecting relationships between other men and women, do they come together. Parental discretion advised."@en
  • "A virtuoso version of Arthur Schnitzler's play, showing love as a bitterly comic merry-go-round. Anton Walbrook acts as narrator as one love affair overlaps another."
  • "Ten interconnecting relationships between men and women illustrate the transience of pleasure and the precariousness of happiness."@en
  • "Ten interconnecting relationships between men and women illustrate the transience of pleasure and the precariousness of happiness."
  • "Civilised love is satirized in a series of passionate encounters set in Vienna in 1900."
  • "Dans une Vienne de conte de fées, une fabuleuse spirale romanesque entraîne les êtres dans une folle sarabande amoureuse."
  • "Set in half-lit, turn-of-the-century Viennese interiors, this film is an elaborate satire of the rituals of love. A merry-go-round of romance is detailed in episodic fashion. Each of the ten sketches is introduced by a master of ceremonies, who appears with the metaphorical carousel. Ophuls comments definitively on the futility of transitory relationships, wherein the deceivers are in turn deceived."
  • "A comedy in which a chain of love started between a young whore and a soldier ends with the same whore after having gone full circle through various characters."
  • "Anton Walbrook is the enigmatic, omnipotent master of ceremonies guiding us through a series of amorous encounters in the Vienna of 1900. One fleeting moment links to the next, partners change, and the dance goes on, turning like the waltz and the coursel until the final vignette brings the story full circle."
  • "SUMMARY: "An all-knowing interlocutor guides us through a series of affairs in Vienna, 1900. A soldier meets an eager young lady of the evening. Later he has an affair with a young lady, who becomes a maid and does similarly with the young man of the house. The young man seduces a married woman. On and on, spinning on the gay carousel of life." IMDB"
  • "An ironic narrator comperes Max Ophuls' circular tale of love and seduction, set in the nostalgic Vienna of 1900."
  • ""Based on Arthur Schnitzler's scandalous 1900 play Reigen, Max Ophuls' La Ronde is an irresistibly sly take on the vicissitudes of love and romance. Set in a Viennese winter during the last years of the Hapsburgs, La Ronde charts the sexes and classes through their illicit liaisons, and its exuberant cinematic flourishes are regarded among Ophuls' stylistic triumphs. A mysterious Master of Ceremonies acts as our guide on this romantic carousel, opening with a fleeting encounter between a lonely prostitute and a returning soldier. Our soldier then returns to his sweetheart, a chambermaid. But soon she too progresses through the romantic roundelay, escorted by her employer's son... and so the lusty carousel turns again, and we waltz along with the lovers as they change partners and dance again - and again, and again"--Container."
  • "Set in Vienna 1900; this bitter-sweet comedy of sexual manners is based on a play which was apparently a metaphor for the transmission of venereal disease. In Ophuls' hands, however, cynicism is transmuted into irony as the tracking and circling camera underlines the circularity of desire and the sad futility of the elegant characters unable to escape from the trap of time. Only the director's alter-ego, the narrator, is granted the freedom to move through time and shape his identity. Ophuls' foregrounding of artifice only serves, in the words of Philip Kemp, to further open the gap between 'the ideal of love and its transient reality'"

  • "Dans Vienne de 1900, la valse des coeurs infidèles met en scène, surune musique de Strauss, une prostituee, un soldat, une femme de chambre, une femme mariée, un jeune homme, une grisette, ... et un comte qui boucle la ronde."
  • ""In 1900 Vienna, an elegant compère shows that love is a merry-go-round: prostitute meets soldier meets housemaid meets master meets married woman meets husband meets midinette meets poet ... meets prostitute meets soldier ..."--Halliwell's Film and Video Guide, 5th ed."
  • "La Ronde translates as 'the round' which can refer to the policeman's beat, a circle of dancers, or a carousel, all of which this circular collection of interconnected short stories resembles. Each scene is built around a specific pair, and when one member of the pair breaks away from his or her lover, he or she then moves on to the next, introducing the partner that will lead on to the next pair, and so on until we are back where we started. Many of these lovers are seeking something they've lost in arms that look familiar but that belong to strangers. La ronde is the bittersweet note sounded by the circular nostalgia of the heart."
  • "When it comes to matters of infidelity, everyone is considered an equal, whether it's a soldier, a maid, or an aristocrat in 1900s Vienna. Bonus features include interviews and commentary."
