Max Ophuls Plays Chopin

Well, Max Ophuls isn’t exactly tickling the keys – that would be Alexander Brailovsky. But in filming Brailovsky’s rendition of the Valse Brillante, Ophuls gives a little master class on how a movie’s form can become infectious with its music.

It puts me in mind of another exquisite short film of music being played, “Jammin’ the Blues” directed by Gjon Mili. I posted it a couple months ago.
