Fri­day, sbs, 10.55pm, MA15+ (2006)

Dutch di­rec­tor Paul Ver­ho­even (Ba­sic In­stinct, Show­girls) does noth­ing to quell his no­to­ri­ous love of boobs and com­plete lack of sub­tlety with this unashamedly bodice-rip­ping World War II thriller. Pretty Jewish girl Rachel Stein (Carice van Houten) in­fil­trates en­emy quar­ters and falls for a high-rank­ing Gestapo of­fi­cer (The Lives of Oth­ers star Se­bas­tian Koch) while seek­ing to avenge the mur­der of her fam­ily. Tan­gled in a web of in­trigue, treach­ery and be­trayal, the se­duc­tive spy strug­gles to dis­tin­guish be­tween friend and foe as she seeks jus­tice.
