    Reeks with decay and sexuality.
  5. The Blue Angel it's clear to Von Sternberg, and to us, that he's connected with some pure being of cinema, whose power to ignite an audience was unstoppable. She became a great star.

    Lumbers a little on its way to a preordained conclusion, but is intriguing for its glimpses of backstage life in shabby German postwar vaudeville, and for Dietrich's performance, which seems to float above the action as if she's stepping fastidiously across gutters.
  7. This is melodrama with broad theatrical flourishes, but Dietrich's sensuality is still a natural wonder, and with a new print, the Film Forum run offers a rare opportunity to see it big-screen-size.

The main character become crazy while the movie goes on, you dont know what is happening and the end is great, one of best 3 acts ever. I recomend this movie for everione that likes of good animation or amazing plot twists, or if do you like about crazy characters. Watch this movie, you only need to resist the boring beggining to deserve the full movie . Expand
