This was a disappointing venture for the Dietrich-Lubitsch team, as this slight story provided no sparks for the magic expected.

Audience Reviews for Angel

Not the kind of screwball comedy you expect from Lubitsch, but since I'm not too fond of what I've seen, that was fine with me. There's a few gags, and good ones, but for the most part it's closer to a romantic drama. Think Brief Encounter with a lighter touch. Marlene Dietrich is growing on me, a lot. Her performance is the most interesting aspect of this movie, which is otherwise somewhat uneventful and predictable, without the melancholic elegance of Lean's film. Loved the ending, though.
