More than just two legends of cinema, Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo are the cinema. These two icons, symbols of timeless glamour, have forever changed the erotic imagination of a whole era through their exoticism and audacity.
Garbo was the first to become a star. Beautiful, distant, unattainable, Garbo the Divine was the most admired star of her era. But then Marlene Dietrich arrived: the femme fatale with her unsettling sensuality. She was the unforgettable Blue Angel, the only star capable of eclipsing the divine One.
In light of romances and rivalries, the film sheds a fresh look at the passionate duel between Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo. Beneath the popular battle, behind the polished legend, we discover the intimate portrait of two women, with their own scars and flaws.
