A film chosen by Saïd Ben Saïd (Dream festival)

A famous film star is put under an anesthetic after an attempted suicide and relives her melodramatic past.

The only Italian movie by Max Ophuls who, as he was fleeing from nazism, went through Italia before settling in France. "[The movie] distinguishes itself from Italian cinema of that time because of its mix between a traditional dramatic comedy and some sort of creative frenzy - emphasized  by Ophul's swirling camera" (Jean A. Gili)
