Only yesterday...and no tomorrow.
13 December 2003 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

This is the French "only yesterday" (Stahl);the title tells the whole story:it's a melodrama which follows all the rules of the game.Sandwiched,in Ophuls's filmography, between "Werther" ,a classic which he did not make very interesting,and "De Mayerling à Sarajevo" ,which dealt with the Hapsburg's tragedy,"sans lendemain" ,which is despised by the French critics does not deserve such a fate:although it's not on a par with "Lola Montès " ,"Madame de ..." or "le plaisir" ,it's worth watching.

Edwige Feuillère ,after "sans lendemain" ,would be countess Sophie Chotek,Francis-Ferdinand von Habsburg's morganatic wife in "de Mayerling à Sarajevo' the following year,actually a propaganda movie. Here she's a jaded woman ,abandoned by a shady husband with a lot of debts.She's got a son to bring up,so she works as a topless dancer in the nightclub "la sirene" .Enter a handsome man,her former love,whom she could not marry because she was already another man's wife.

She's ashamed of herself,of her life ,of her seedy apartment;so she borrows money from some kind of pimp.She knows from the start ,that not only her dream will be short-lived ,but she will also have to pay dearly for it afterwards.These three days are some kind of pilgrimage ,bringing her to places she went when they were young,particularly the ski resort where they met.The white snow will contrast with the darkness Ophuls will use at the end of his movie...

A conclusion which is not unlike that of John Stahl 's "only yesterday" (1933)Woman is sacrified,but anyway,it's a permanent feature in Ophuls' canon from "liebelei " to "Madame de..." .Edwige Feuillère gives a wonderful performance.
