I know that Leonard Maltin is lukewarm about this movie but I don't know why. Even he acknowledges that Garbo is sensational in it. She simply smolders, in long satin gowns that skim her figure or looking every inch the seductress in a huge black fur. The passion between her and Conrad Nagel is completely believable. Nagel is every inch the upper crust Austrian military officer.

I found the story of two people torn between duty to their country and their hearts' desires was a very compelling quandary. the movie has a slightly over-dramatic tendency common to most silent films but I was riveted.

The TCM version had a kind of oddly 1980's jazz score but the melodies enhanced the action.
