In each film there is a man who falls into Dietrich’s web, a man that she uses, abuses and laughs as he comes crawling back for more. There is a small element to that in this film, but mostly it’s just a showcase for Dietr... read more

Description: Josef von Sternberg returned Marlene Dietrich to the stage in Blonde Venus, both a glittering spectacle and a sweeping melodrama about motherly devotion. Unfolding episodically, the film tells the story of Helen (Dietrich), once a German chanteuse, now an American housewife, who resurrects her stage career after her husband (Herbert Marshall) falls ill; she then becomes the mistress of a millionaire (Cary Grant), in a slide from loving martyr to dishonored woman.

"28.11. Marlene Dietrich on jälleen kerran räväkkä laulajatar, mutta Blonde Venus onneksi hieman tavallisesta poikkeava pettämiskertomus. Tarina itsessään on ihan kiinnostava, mutta lopun yhteenpalaaminen kliseefestivaali. Kabareehommat eivät kiinnosta minua, ja kun elokuvan kestosta aika paljon on vain Dietrichin esiintyimisellä hekumointia, tippuu pisteitä aika ronskisti, vaikka muuten elokuvasta pidinkin."
