Description

Cinemaniac David Wong selects a Max Ophuls collaboration with Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.

The Exile overlays a familiar fable--that of the incognito prince in love with a commoner--onto the historical exile of England's Charles II to Holland in the 1650s. Director Max Ophuls got on well with producer-star-co-writer Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., and was given free rein stylistically. Ophuls's trademark camera fluidity and compositional intricacy--used to devastatingly heartrending effect when tracing the psychological confinement of his female protagonists--achieve a more muted poignancy when utilized to underscore his outsider male protagonists' longing for the simple rituals of ordinary human connectedness. (1947, 95 min, 35mm)
