Queen Christina

THURSDAY 4 FEBRUARY

Queen Christina, Rouben Mamoulian, 1933.

English with subtitles in Spanish, 97 min.

Greta Garbo bigger than life and John Gilbert. Pre-code, which in this case means that the Queen of Sweden goes through life bisexually and we see it all on the big screen. In addition, the hunger for a world outside the walls of the royal palace lead her to spend half the movie dressed in men’s clothing. The happy sexual encounter with a “Spanish” diplomat gives her unexpected freedom and the possibility of imagining herself as a commoner, as an other.
