Description: Based loosely on the real-life story of the World War I spy.

She successfully plays both sides against each other until at last her deceptions catch up with her.
Oh my God! This movie is soooooo good! Let me tell ya’…..
Syl Kristel plays the infamous femme fatale spy with an acting effort which is probably the finest female performance ever recorded on film. Oh my God! You have got to see this! Don’t believe the naysayers. They are just jealous because actresses like Syl and myself are so beautiful, and they’re not. Hateful fools! You must see this version of ‘Mata Hari’. Syl makes Greta Garbo in the original movie look like a bag of wet potato chips.
By all means, rent it, or buy it, or steal it from a friend. But not from me because I’m not your friend. If I lent you a pair of my shoes, you probably wouldn’t return them. You thieves. Now go watch this movie …
