Der blaue Engel

Josef von Sternberg Germany, 1930

張大智's rating of the film The Blue Angel

Emil Janning's professor is masterfully written and portrayed. Coming from the silent era and the theatre, his style is beautifully carituresque, and yet subtle. An eternal film, one that lingers, and whose images will regularly appear in your visual memory. Sternberg was right, Dietrich had glorious legs.
