Letter From An Unknown Woman DVD


In turn of the century Vienna a dashing man arrives at his flat instructing his manservant that he will leave before morning: the man is Stefan Brand (Louis Jourdan) formerly a concert pianist planning to leave Vienna to avoid a duel. His servant gives him a letter from an unknown woman. In the letter he experiences the lifelong passion of Lisa Berndle for him: first as a girl who was his neighbor; next as a young woman who in secret has his child; then as a mature woman who meets him again and abandons husband and son to be with him. Each time he does not remember... who she is or that they have ever met. By morning he has finished the letter and her husband awaits satisfaction..... This haunting tale is perhaps cinema's greatest unrequited love story and is considered to be one of Ophuls' great masterpieces. [show more]

Stefan Brandt (Louis Jourdan) recalls his relationship with Lisa (Joan Fontaine) when he receives a letter from her in turn-of-the-century Vienna. The letter tells how Lisa fell in love with him as a girl, but was devastated when, after spending the night with him, he vanished from her life. A chance encounter years later rekindled her passion, but led to further heartbreak.
