Which is Greta Garbo's best film?

I love classic films, but I've never really understood the fuss over Garbo. Perhaps knowledgable DLers can suggest one of her films for me to check out.

Garbo's acting doesn't translate easily to modern audiences. She's very remote, but some of her films are worth watching. Ninotchka is probably the most accessible. Camille features dreamy Robert Taylor and the divine Laura Hope Crews. Most critics think it's Garbo's best performance.

Yes I would agree that Camille is her best performance but Queen Christina has classic sequences like the I'm memorising this room, and the famous last shot of her in closeup.
