Liebelei (1933) is a German film directed by Max Ophüls. The film, based on a play of the same name (Liebelei (de)) by Arthur Schnitzler, describes an ill-fated love affair.


A love affair between a young lieutenant and a musician's daughter ends tragically when the lieutenant is killed in a duel, and the girl commits suicide.

A separate French-language version - A Love Story (1934) - was also released, using most of the original cast.
