Using the Eva Peron legend, filmmaker Metzger managed to turn a pretty good story about political intrigue and a relentless urge for power into little more than suggestive pulp. Kruger plays the cancer-stricken woman who met her husband while she was a prostitute and aided his political

career through her connections. Now that she is dying, she attempts to achieve canonization from the Catholic Church. But first she must get rid of people who know about her lowly beginnings as a prostitute. Flashbacks explain how Kruger helped her husband become the uncontested ruler of the

country. She used the bedroom to secure power, but the people still view her as a "saint." Kruger gives a performance that is the film's only redeeming feature, but the rest of the cast is incredibly flat and overly concerned with what seems to be the main object of the picture: to tease sexually

rather than present an intriguing expose of political corruption. (In English.)
