Storyline

It's the roaring twenties in Berlin. The Tigress, a gorgeous, wild, and very independent street walker, falls for a handsome grifter. When one of her lovers gets jealous, she betrays him and has to skip town. The grifter reveals he has what it takes to move in upper class circles and suggests they flee to Carlsbad, a spa in Czechoslovakia. Does he love her or is he only using her? Is the Tigress madly in love with him or does she want to satisfy her vanity and drop him once he falls for her? The ancient cat and mouse game between a man and a woman unfolds amidst sensual seduction, the scheme of robbing a rich Texan and the jilted lover arriving from Berlin, gun drawn.

A great movie with a great female lead.
1 February 2005 | by hogsettenterprisesSee all my reviews

This would have been a rather ordinary, mediocre movie, made great because of the lead role played by Valentina Vargas. I have never seen a movie before that I thought the lead female role was so perfectly cast. She played it with such enthusiasm and in such a sexy way that it would be impossible not to like her, even if one hated the rest of the movie. The depression era setting was perfect for it, and Ms Vargas. The rest of the actors, including the lead male, were just props for her role. Then, during the end credits, a great blues/jazz song was played. I left the credits running just to listen to it and find out who was singing it. It was... Valentina Vargas. It's amazing to me that she does not have a more extensive resume.
