Critic Reviews for As You Desire Me

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • A romantic problem play interestingly played by the fascinating Greta Garbo, treated in a manner of high drama. The original hasn't been broadly hoked in the manner that Metro has so often followed.

    March 26, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Garbo (sporting a peroxide wig some of the time) brings a real erotic undertow to the love scenes, while Stroheim is terrific as the demonically sadistic writer trying to model her as one of his own creations.

    February 9, 2006
  • [Garbo] rises far above the story as it comes to the screen, but because of her impeccable performance the picture never fails to captivate one's interest.

    January 28, 2006 | Full Review…
  • As You Desire Me, through the mystic quality in the Pirandello story, brought out the best in Garbo.

    April 21, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A bizarre, always fascinating film with two of the world's most intriguing characters -- Garbo and von Stroheim -- who square off in histrionic battle.

    September 16, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • It may be slow moving and a shade creaky today, but this Greta Garbo vehicle positively smoulders, and contains some of the most overt sensuality you're likely to see in a Hollywood movie of the period.
