Critic Reviews for The Devil Is a Woman
While Devil is a somewhat monotonous picture, Sternberg has given it clever photography and background.
Sternberg's universe is a realm of textures, shadows, and surfaces, which merge and separate in an erotic dance.
This column regards The Devil Is a Woman as the best product of the Sternberg-Dietrich alliance since The Blue Angel.
It's a story of obsessive love, and von Sternberg's version is certainly obsessive. There's a slightly crazy daringness about his approach to the mythic.
Marlene Dietrich cuts loose and overacts the part of a shrugging, mincing Spanish beauty who digs her heels in the heart of the man who worships her. As usual, Von Sternberg overloads his story with startling camera artifice.
Audience Reviews for The Devil Is a Woman
A seductive and ice-hearted Marlene plays with men's hearts but in the end she offers a surprise. How is the title to be read? Until the final scene, it's pretty clear: this woman is the devil himself. But then, there's another one: even the devil (she who seems to be) is only a woman capable of love... who can tell?
