  Josef von Sternberg's final collaboration with Marlene Dietrich (1935) was out of circulation for many years, withheld by Paramount at the request of the Spanish government, which objected to the portrayal of the nation's officials as doom-ridden romantics. But the material world, of Spain or anywhere else, has little to do with Sternberg's creation, which remains one of the most coldly beautiful films ever made. Sternberg's universe is a realm of textures, shadows, and surfaces, which merge and separate in an erotic dance. The director's distant, serene gaze on the melodramatic action represents the closest cinematic approach to James Joyce's ideal of "aesthetic stasis." The source material, Pierre Louys' The Woman and the Puppet, was used again as the basis for Luis Bu˝uel's That Obscure Object of Desire.

Comments:

Another simple single layered DVD this looks very good. Possibly there has been a bit of boosting of the black levels giving this s light 'thick' appearance - its hard to sure because if it has been done it is quite minimal. Again a shade a grain gives a nice touch. As I stated with 'Dishonored',  If any of us had been able to obtain these in time I am sure a few of these Universal DVDs would have been positively mentioned in our 2005 DVD of the Year poll. These discs have been region -coded to sell in Europe, Middle East, Russia and Australia with enough removable subtitle options to add to their versatility. No extras and a very no frills package but its the films that many Dietrich/Sternberg fans have craved for far too long. We again recommend this DVD with Dietrich in her highly anticipated bewitching and mesmerizing form. Too good!
