english surtitles







An imaginary kingdom like Pontevedro re-evoked in a sparkling ville lumière where the tragic-comic adventures of a series of characters that could come from our upper-class news columns take place, and a millionaire widow is encouraged to remarry owing to reasons of State while a young lady, as elegant as her name, tries to conceal a dangerous flirt.
Die lustige Witwe blends the lightness and brilliance of the brushstrokes (a combination of publicity and the figurative arts) that characterise the work of Toulouse-Lautrec with the agitated, tormented lines of the women in Giovanni Boldini’s portraits. The result is a marvellous caricature of a society that lives off bubbles.
