Lola Montes, a celebrated 19th-century courtesan, is reduced to acting out her ignominious past as part of a circus act. Narrated by a sadistic ringmaster (Peter Ustinov), Lola's life story-her unhappy marriage, her romance with Franz Liszt, and her affair with the King of Bavaria-unfolds in Max Ophuls' dazzling succession of beautifully choreographed flashbacks.
