Le timbre profond des "Feuilles mortes", l'air d'enfant vieilli de César et Rosalie, le cabotin sublime du Milliardaire… : dans la chanson comme au cinéma, Yves Montand a été immensément populaire, dépassant son statut de saltimbanque pour devenir, au côté de sa femme Simone Signoret, l'icône de toute une génération. Pourtant, rien n'aura été facile pour l'acteur, né Ivo Livi, disparu il y a un peu moins de 25 ans, le 9 novembre 1991, à l'âge de 70 ans. Celui qui a débuté au cabaret, repéré puis épaulé par Édith Piaf, aura passé sa vie à frôler le scandale amoureux tout en fonçant tête baissée dans tous les combats de son temps, quitte à se fourvoyer, du communisme encore stalinien au libéralisme bon teint.

Simone Signoret, Anton Walbrook, and Simone Simon lead a roundelay of French stars in Max Ophuls’s delightful, acerbic adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler’s controversial turn-of-the-century play Reigen. Soldiers, chambermaids, poets, prostitutes, aristocrats—all are on equal footing in this multicharacter merry-go-round of love and infidelity, directed with a sweeping gaiety as knowingly frivolous as it is enchanting, and shot with Ophuls’s trademark mellifluous cinematography.
