Mata Hari (1931)

The name breathes mystery, intrigue and sexual allure. Who better to play the notorious World War I spy than Greta Garbo, the enigmatic, exquisite screen icon called The Swedish Sphinx?

I think that more could have been done with the film considering that Mata Hari had a glamourous and dangerous career. It didn't leave me on the edge of my seat or teach me anything about Mata Hari. Still, it is worth a watch when you have nothing better to do.

Resign and die
Normally, resigning from a job is a wonderfully liberating experience. Not in the profession of spying, though. To resign is to sign your death warrant in this particular industry. Will Garbo (Mata Hari) resign herself to love?

The film is basically a love story for Greta Garbo set in the midst of some spy intrigue. Shame as I was wanting to watch a film about Mata Hari and learn something about the woman. The film is not true to life so has to lose a mark for that. As a story, it’s a bit confusing – who’s spying for who? It takes a while to work it out. Lose another mark. Then, there’s Ramon Novarro (Rosanoff). Lose another mark.

There are good moments in the film and the costumes for Garbo are a standout. This helps as we watch one legend play another legend.
