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.

von Sternberg puts forth a typically probing analysis of gender and exploitation that's uncomfortably close to home.
February 9, 2006
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.

Classic Hollywood and classic Sternberg at their most preposterously outageous -- and at their most glorious.

Dreary Marlene Dietrich vehicle.

A disappointer. Much of the blame is to be laid at director Josef von Sternberg's doorstep.
January 28, 2006
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.

May 24, 2003
Unfocussed and unevenly paced, Dietrich keeps this together while much that surrounds her flails rather awkwardly.
January 1, 2000
Even Josef von Sternberg had his off days.
