Embarking on his honeymoon with his young rich bride, Henri glimpses a woman through a frosted train window. Their eyes lock. Henri is instantly bewitched, and the audience swoons with him, smitten by the woman’s impassive, enigmatic gaze. Marlene Dietrich shines in her first starring role as a mysterious femme fatale in this steamy tale of erotic obsession. This rarely-screened masterpiece is shown with live music by Jonny Best (piano) and Irine Røsnes (violin).
