Marina Pinares, the wife of the president of a South American country, insists on being his vice-presidential running mate in the next election. She's no stranger to assassination to get what she wants, so some suspect she'll kill her own husband after the election to become president. In a series of flashbacks we see her rise to power: a party girl willing to sacrifice a friend's virtue to gain favor; the lover of a soldier she later tortures; the mistress of the military man she soon marries. The cult of the "Little Mother" has swept the country. She's always scheming. Even when she learns she has a fatal disease, she calculates how to leave a legacy in death. Written by
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.
