4.0 out of 5 stars Silent Goddess 16 April 2010
By Ross
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you know nothing of Garbo or of silent cinema other than Chaplin, you could be in for a delightfully new experience if you are prepared to accept dialogue very much of its time - the twenties. I don't see how anyone could be unaffected by the powerfully love scenes towards the start of "Flesh and the Devil". But I guess most customers will be fans of Garbo's talkies Greta Garbo Signature Collection: Anna Christie / Mata Hari / Queen Christina / Anna Karenina / Camille / Ninotchka [DVD]- in which case be prepared to meet her in a much darker variety of moods and expressions. Of course one misses her golden voice, but the silent camera's strength,for example in dwwelling on facial expressions as they change, more than compensates. I played the three films straight through on consecutive days - but I woulsn't want to shaare the experience with someone too inflexible to try to respond to unfamiliar conventions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superlative Garbo and Gilbert silent 13 April 2006
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I have seen all the great Garbo talkies and have always sensed in her performances the remoteness of a screen goddess.

But Flesh and the Devil is something different, here there is no distance. In real life Garbo and John Gilbert met and fell in love on this film, and the evidence is in the astounding love scene where they seem completely lost in each other, the most intense and tender I have ever experienced in a film. According to the commentary although acting their roles they were also doing it for real, and continued long after the scene was finished.

Felicitas (Garbo) is certainly a femme fatal, but in my opinion this is because of force of circumstances, it is a love triangle not two friends being pitted against each other by a manipulative woman.

Great production values, sympathetic direction by Clarence Brown who ultimately directed seven Garbo films, excellent photography, and finally a very good transfer to DVD of one of the finest silent films ever made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seminal Garbo 23 Sep 2005
This highly impressive transfer of the first really worthwhile Garbo classic is indispensable and untterly enjoyable throughout, even if TCM's obsession to put the emphasis more on the scores than on the classics themselves is, to say the least, very puzzling... Anyway, this gem is still one of the most gorgeous films ever made at MGM in the silent days, thanks to the impeccable visual intuition of the great, underrated Clarence Brown, the legendary dedication of the official star of the film, John Gilbert, and the participation of numerous actors, from Garbo herself(Guess what? She IS brilliant!)to her Swedish co-star from Gosta Berling, Lars Hanson. This is dazzling, pure, undiluted silent fare, in a beautiful print, from Kevin Brownlow and David Gill's series Thames Silents. Need I say more?
