La Ronde (Roundabout) is a 1950 movie, directed by Max Ophüls based on Arthur Schnitzler's 1897 play of the same name.

The film was nominated for two Academy Awards; for Best Writing and Best Art Direction (Jean d'Eaubonne). [1]



It tells a series of stories about love affairs or illicit meetings involving a prostitute, a soldier, a chambermaid, her employer's son, a married woman, her husband, a young girl, a poet, an actress and a count. At the end of each encounter, one of the partners forms a liaison with another person, and so on.
