‘This is a highly fascinating ﬁlm to revisit. It gives you the essential Garbo – enigmatic to the last shot of the self-exiled Swedish queen abdicating her throne for love and setting sail with the expressionless face that Mamoulian commanded her to wear, so that ﬁlmgoers projected their own thoughts on to her ‘perfect blankness’… Garbo was the most instinctual ﬁlm actress ever:Queen Christina is her showcase.’ – Evening Standard, 1998
Available on: 35mm
