From the back cover of the video box:

"Mata Hari. The name means Eye of the Day in her native Javanese. There has been no name more notorious, no eye more lethal, in the history of international seductresses.

The daughter of a sacred dancer, Mata Hari tours the capitals of Europe with her hypnotically profane version of Java's ritualistic choreography. It is her destiny to beguile men and women alike, in an era when the shadow of World War I endangers every liaison. When she takes as lovers two former friends, a German and a Frenchman, now enemies by the war, she becomes a pawn in their deadly cat-and-mouse intrigues.

From the Folies Bergère in Paris to the sinister Fraulein Doktor's office in Berlin to an orgiastic party in Madrid, Mata Hari weaves her spell between enemy camps and between satin sheets leaving behind her broken hearts.... and lifeless bodies."

From Some Famous Frisians:

"Mata Hari, (Malaysian for 'Eye of the Day', 1876-1917). Born in Leeuwarden as Margaretha G. Zelle, she became famous as a dance-hostess in Paris during World-War I. She had relationships with German high-ranked officers, which caused her to be executed on grounds of espionage."
