Storyline

Two ghosts attend an engagement party, unseen by the other guests. One ghost, Dupont, is the father of the bride-to-be. He looks back on his marriage to her mother. His wife Annette was always very unhappy; business kept him away from home. The doctor recommended indulging her whims for furs and jewels. Then Uncle Émile suggested a trip to Paris. All went well until the day they went to the circus and saw the lion-tamer, Rodrigo the Conqueror. Rodrigo becomes Annette's lover ... and the second ghost... But wait a second. There's a third ghost at the party! Written by David Carless

This is one of the rare movies in Ophuls' work were the woman is not sacrificed.The victims here are rather the two men,or rather their ghosts ...who come back on Line's wedding day.They are her father and her mother's lover, a lion tamer.It is not really a tale of fantasy though.The ghosts' role is to introduce the flashbacks .They exchange pleasant lines: "how annoying it is to feel the living passing through you!" and after realizing they were unhappy during their earthly ride,they decide to make LIne marry the man she really loves.

This is an odd disconcerting film and the characters have not the substance they have in the director's other works.There's a good use of music: the popular waltz "Froufrou" (=rustle),"Aimer" sung by an opera singer and the ironic little tune "Il était un petit navire " (there was a little ship which had never sailed away).But one cannot place "Tendre Ennemie" among Ophuls' best works.
