| Political Exploitation Movie
This curious little film is clearly based on the life story of Evita Peron, despite renaming the characters and despite making the usual disclaimer that the story is entirely fictious. The film is a strange hybrid between political drama and exploitation film; Metzger even prepped up a sex scene with a couple of close-to-hardcore inserts with body doubles.

The most striking characteristic of the film is perhaps the hypocrisy of the Marina Pinares character, playing publicly a squeaky clean do-gooder while she is privately prepared to use sex and murder to get to and stay at the top. Christiane Krüger remarkably manages to make this appear believable. I find it hard to think about any other actress who would have been suitable for the role.
