"Ophuls' masterful balance of viewpoints allows the viewer to perceive the long flashback that constitutes the film's main body as both a literal embodiment of Lisa's romantic fantasy and a critique of said romanticism."
A charming but philandering concert pianist receives a letter from a strange woman the night before he is due to fight a duel for offending a lady's honor. Through the letter, he comes to understand for the first time the undying love that one woman felt for him through the years, despite his cavalier attitude and broken promises.
