A disappointer. Much of the blame is to be laid at director Josef von Sternberg's doorstep.
The film is certainly a mess at one level, with damaging fluctuations in tone and pace, and some ropey supporting performances, but it remains enough of a visual triumph to earn its place in the series of Dietrich movies.
A muddled, unimaginative and generally hapless piece of work, relieved somewhat by the talent and charm of the German actress and Herbert Marshall's valiant work in a thankless rôle.
Even Josef von Sternberg had his off days.
its framing of conventional melodramatic narrative beats with excessive visual style doesn't always work, making it feel at times like a fractured work, one with two personalities working against each other.
Sudsy, but where else will you see Dietrich singing "Hot Voodoo" while initially wearing a gorilla costume and then a white afro?
Atmospheric and visually stimulating but Josef von Sternberg's morality tale is a little thin.
You'll not see many films superior to this in their use of visual detail, tempo, humour and double-edged significance.
Von Sternberg's paen to the pain of love in all its variations is so lovingly rendered that the shoestring story looks almost seamless.
Dreary Marlene Dietrich vehicle.
von Sternberg puts forth a typically probing analysis of gender and exploitation that's uncomfortably close to home.
Classic Hollywood and classic Sternberg at their most preposterously outageous -- and at their most glorious.
one of the odder dietrich/sternberg collaborations, this one juxtaposes the decadent high life against comfortable domesticity. i personally take issue with the choice she made haha. includes the famous gorilla suit number and cary grant
I didn't get this movie. If people would have taken more time to discuss their problems the story would have been a lot different. It was just stupid to me, but the acting was good, so I didn't rate it so low.
