Felix's Marlene Dietrich is tangible, vulnerable and self-deprecating dame waiting to come on stage at the end of her career, for the last time. Felix's Dietrich tells a story some people would not want to hear, a story that goes against some of the myths and half-truths we all know and heard of about famous actress of volatile times.
Germany-France-US and back again, many international awards and medals (none from Movie Academy), string of lovers and broken hearts and even longer string of pain, loss and hurt, Marlene shares her story with audience using Stenberg (famous German producer) famous secret - bright lights right in the eyes, to blind, to make the audience a whole big black hole, to make it easier to seduce the audience without actually seeing it.
Felix is amazing in the role of Dietrich. She is sincere and sharp, truthful with a touch of pain and sarcastic with a smell of whisky. She bares it all without moving a finger or a toe.
