Powell and Pressburger classic, based on the 1881 opera by Jacques Offenbach. An anthology of fantastic and romantic adventures, recounted by the fableist Hoffmann (Robert Rounseville) and featuring Moira Shearer (The Red Shoes), Ludmilla Tchérina, and Ann Ayars. The film has been singled out by film making legends as diverse as Cecil B. DeMille, Martin Scorsese and George A. Romero. A film of pure, dreamlike strangeness.
