Letter from an Unknown Woman

(1948 / dir. by Max Ophuls / 87 minutes)

Sunday, January 21, 7:00 pm / CERIA 365

Enter through the front door of CERIA, near the elevator.

Based on a novella by Stefan Zweig (the Austrian novelist who inspired Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel), Letter from an Unknown Woman is widely regarded as one of the most elegant and heartbreaking movies ever made about unrequited love. The late, great critic Andrew Sarris once wrote that he had become addicted “to camera movement as an expression of the tyranny of time in the drama of human life,” and Letter from an Unknown Woman—like all of Max Ophuls’ pictures—provides a masterclass in visual storytelling. Joan Fontaine was never better and the magic of the Hollywood studio system quietly conjures the “nervous splendor” of long-lost early 20th century Vienna.

The ninth in a series of historically significant (and always entertaining) film classics, screened every other weekend throughout the semester.

Free and open to all UNM students.
