  1. Howard Fritzson's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    Dietrich looks like a (very) beautiful drag queen and acts like a puppet. The camerawork is ravishing but the film is stilted and artificial. Not for me.

  2. Rocco's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    It’s stunning how many types of seductress Dietrich could play, and cooing coquette, Concha was the perfect role to end her collaboration with Sternberg on. It’s the most skin-deep of their endeavors and lacks the complex evocations of desire that color the duo’s best work, but Dietrich never looked more “Dietrich” and it’s an apropos, unknowing sendoff to the lavish, erotic fantasia that was Von Sternberg’s cinema.

    if don giovanni were a gal. amusing!

  4. Jason's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    Dietrich herself claimed THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN as her personal favourite from among her collaborations w/ von Sternberg. Is it their greatest collaboration? Almost nobody would say it is, but I might. It's probably their least fundamentally characteristic. It is fleet, anarchic, ironic, and occasionally outright hilarious. It can stand next to the best of Lubitsch. Dietrich operates here as pure unobstructed virtuoso.

  6. Ghostman's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    The Devil Is a Woman is a masterpiece made by maverick filmmaker Josef Von Sternberg. Starring the ravishing Marlene Dietrich in her prime, who plays a real heartbreaker of men, the film, taking place in Spain at the turn of the 20th Century, involves an older man who is a captain and a younger man who is a revolutionary bond over Dietrich's Concha Perez.

    Dernier film du tandem Dietrich/Von Sternberg, une gâterie baroque de haute volée. www.cinefiches.com

  10. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    Is the devil a woman? Take the 7 Sternberg-Dietrich films as a package, and you can go mad trying to decide how they feel about sex, because every pain, joy, and contradiction of desire is on display. This final film is the most brutal, a metaphor for movie love goddesses that leaves you unsure which manipulator to root for. I'll say this, though: they ended their creative partnership on the perfect line of dialogue.

    I love masks and veils tbh

  13. patchwork's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    un film d'ambientazione turistico-etnica con un'impostazione decisamente barocca, un sovraccarico d'immagine quasi soffocante: per ampi tratti ricorda le cineversioni di opere liriche d'antan (anche qua non ci risparmia il numero canoro). La Dietrich fa il suo anche solo con la sua presenza, il resto dei personaggi è vittima di stupidera amorosa. In sostanza una cartolina d'altri tempi trascurabile **1/2

  16. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

  17. LI-IX's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    This is a quite a good film that gets smaller when compared to other Von Sternberg's works. The aesthetic composition is commendable, and Dietrich offers a strong performance, but "The Devil Is a Woman" lacks some of the expressive vigor and profoundity that Josef von Sternberg usually displays in his films.

  18. Artem Eihart's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    dietrich with her smile in the masquerade scene is certainly one of the most alluring women close-ups in cinema

  22. MarcH's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    Recently saw the restored print on the big screen. OK, I can die now.

  23. Dave's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    Very interesting to watch, story-wise, after having learned a bit about the working relationship between von Sternberg and Dietrich and now knowing that this would be the last time they would work together. I think that at least five other collaborations between the two top this film, but it still has enough of the magic that they were apparently able to bring out in each other. Dietrich is just so damn seductive.

  24. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film The Devil Is a Woman

    The opening sequence was pretty good, the rest seemed vague even unto itself. Felt there could have been more to this than there was...
