I really enjoyed this film. Sure Sternberg does his usual thing, composition in depth. However, what makes this film really shine isn’t Sternberg at the peak of his craft, but Marlene Dietrich in full Lola mode. She puts every man around her little finger and it is a joy to watch.

The combination of Sternberg and Marlene is matched only by The Blue Angel. I highly recommend this film.
