Some flowers for good luck?

- You're late again.

- I couldn't button my dress.

Some flowers, pretty girl?

Get your program!


They'll penetrate the Somme front.

- It's a sacred dance.

- Hardly!

She learned in a temple.

Her mother was from Java.

She's no more from Java

than you are.

I saw her in Monte Carlo,

she was superb!

- They let anyone in here!

- That soldier is totally drunk.

Yes, she gave me the tickets.

I know her personally.

Keep quiet, there!

Shut up!

The Krauts have taken Douaumont!

Sorry to boast, but I told you so.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

please don't leave.

Starting tomorrow,

soldiers get in half price.

Bravo, you were wonderful!

What a lousy crowd though.

- What a lousy theater.

- It's the same everywhere.

People are worried.

Variety Club is doing worse than us.

And El Dorado only sold

three tickets yesterday.

You see?

The theaters are in crisis.

I'm in crisis too.

Pay me or I won't dance tomorrow.

Be patient Greta,

I'll have some money soon.

Greta, if this place were mine...

I'd sell it to pay what I owe you,

and more.

You're a princess, a queen.

The hall should be filled

with bankers and barons,

instead of louts and deviants.

It's too good for them.

They don't get Indian art.

Charlotte, hurry!

I'm exhausted.

How are you, Charlotte?

Very well,

like when I hear from my son.

He's been in the same trench

for three months.

He doesn't even have writing paper.

He uses old scraps of paper.

I'm going to send him

a care package.

The Red Cross sent some vinyl records

but he doesn't have a phonograph.

I wanted to send him one

in the package...

but they're much too expensive

and the boss hasn't paid anyone.

Buy your son his phonograph.

But you weren't paid either.

Don't worry about me.

I have my secret funds.

It's just me, beautiful.

Your Gaston.

I've come to pay my regards.

I just left The Circle

and I'm very proud of myself.

What is it?

You must announce yourself

to see Mata Hari.

One night with me

and you think you can just walk in?

- Charlotte, show him the door.

- That's too much!

- Here, Charlotte.

- Thank you, sir.

Good night.

What did I tell you?

What is this?

It's Madam Perrin's boy.

Is that for me?

What's your name?


Oh, there's a note.

Goodbye, Alphonse.


Trois Frres Street in 30 minutes.

It's Mata Hari!

I'd like an autograph.

Thank you, Miss.

For my husband, please.

For your dear father!

I told you not to come

to the theater.

You also said

not to visit you at home.

- Ashamed of me, are you?

- What do you want?


Did you ever think to get a job?

Maybe you could hire me.

How droll.

Good evening, Julien.

We're not going home just yet.

Take me to...

Trois Frres Street.

Charlotte, I'm not going home now.

Take a taxi.

- Should I wait for you?

- No, good night.


Shall I go with you?

No, wait here

and leave the engine running.

Thank you for the flowers.

- Thank you for the flowers.

- Did you destroy the card?

- I forgot.

- Give me it.

- Thank you.

- Miss.

- Pardon?

- Thank you, Miss.

There is no Miss.

You're agent H21.

Did you get the invitation

from the Baroness?


There's a new mission for you.

My dear friend!

- Thank you for coming.

- I was able to get free.

- I'm so happy.

- I'd have hated to miss it.

I wanted all my friends here.

Unfortunately our soiree

won't be as joyful as I had hoped.

You know the Krauts

took Douaumont...

Yes, the Germans took Douaumont.

I call them Krauts.

I'm not French,

I have no reason to do so.

I'm from Java, so I'm neutral.
