THE OYSTER PRINCESS
15.10 | 9:30 pm | Cinema Charlot – Auditório Municipal
Romantic comedy about the wedding of the spoiled daughter of an American millionaire who doesn't go as planned.
Exuberant and with a sophisticated use of film language resources for comedy and eroticism, the film is considered by Lubitsch himself to be the first to present sketches of his personal touch known as “The Lubitsch Touch”, traces of what would become landmarks. of the director.
It is in the characterization of the whimsical princess character and the fabulous construction of the script, or in the eroticism of Ossi's bath scene. If his entire work stages a voyeur's desire, Lubitsch introduces here the common element in his cinematographic work, the indiscretion through the keyhole.
