A rags-to-riches drama, Verhoeven-style: inspired by a true story, the film follows Katie Tippel (Monique Van de Ven), a young woman born into poverty and forced to turn to prostitution in order to provide for her family. Her great beauty and the education she gains on the side give her access to higher society, and an escape route from her background which she ruthlessly pursues.
Dir Paul Verhoeven, Netherlands 1975, 100 minutes, subtitles, Cert 18
