Die Frau, nach der man sich sehnt

Marlene Dietrich is captivating in her first starring role, as a mysterious femme fatale, in this steamy tale of guilty love and erotic obsession.

Embarking on 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 and enigmatic gaze. The woman is Stascha (Dietrich), travelling with the menacing Dr Karoff, and seemingly in need of rescue. Impulsively, Henri follows her, and is drawn into a seedy love triangle…

Presented in collaboration with the Yorkshire Silent Film Festival.
