Blonde Venus

9 years, 10 months ago at Jan 29 8:08
Blonde Venus might not be the best of the films Marlene Dietrich and her mentor/lover/victim Josef von Sternberg made together, but it’s definitely one of the more iconic. 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. Despite production difficulties courtesy of the Hays Office, the director’s baroque visual style shines, as do one of the most memorable musical numbers in all of cin ... (more)

"Kuivakka engelsmanni löytää seireenimäisen precode-Marlenen lillumasta jostain Tiergartenin lietealtaasta. Sternberg lykkii tarinaa etiäppäi rivakkaan ja lyhyestä virsi kaunis: kohta ollaan kurtisaanina karkuteillä, lapsensiepparina siippaa paossa. Nuori Archibald Leach joka ei vielä tiedä tulevansa Cary Grantiksi käy välillä patsastelemassa ja määrittämässä Blonde Venuksen nimellisesti kolmiodraamaksi. En oikein tiedä oliko tämä kuitenkaan ihan sitä. En oikein tiedä mitä"

"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."
