Trois valses, or how love eventually prevails between a female artist and a high society man within three generations! A paragon of operetta, Trois Valses is as much Viennese as it is Parisian. Written in German by the composer of The Merry Nibelungen and A Waltz Dream, it enjoyed such success at the Bouffes-Parisiens that it was soon adapted for the screen with Straus’s favorite French actors, Yvonne Printemps and Pierre Fresnay. In this virtuosic film, do not miss Jean Périer: the creator of Pelléas and Mârouf plays the patriarch of the male descendants!
