In this episode we’re discussing Letter from an Unknown Woman,
the 1948 film directed by Max Ophüls. In the movie, concert pianist
Stefan Brand (Louis Jourdain) receives a letter from an anonymous
woman (Joan Fontaine), describing a romance with him which becomes
an obsession and ends in tragedy.
I'm joined by film critic Ben Flanagan, who in addition to bylines for MUBI and Vague Visages also edits Cinema Year Zero, a slow criticism journal: https://cinemayearzero.com/
