Mata Hari, agent H21 by Jean-Louis Richard( Visual )

12 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'action se passe à Paris en 1917. On ne parle que de cette guerre qui ne veut plus finir, des civils qui ne peuvent pas comprendre, des embusqués qui mènent la belle vie. Partout le découragement et avec lui, la peur et sa conséquence: l'espionnage. Dans un music-hall parisien se produit une superbe danseuse d'origine javanaise, MATA-HARI dont le nom signifie Fille du Soleil. Ses danses orientales plus suggestives que sacrées, lui valent d'être très en vogue. Les salons parisiens se disputent sa présence, ses admirateurs civils et surtout militaires se multiplient. Cette femme, à la fois courtisane et espionne, nous semble tantôt pure et tantôt rouée, enfantine et diabolique, fragile et dangereuse, amoureuse et intrigante. Le film s'attache à suivre pas à pas les faits et gestes de cette trop belle créature à la faveur de ses entreprises amoureuses et de ses aventures d'espionne. --Conteneur
