The story of Lola Montes, her loves and life, all told in flashbacks from her current job as the star of a traveling circus. After a traditional upbringing, she is pressured by her mother to marry but it's not a happy union. Montes rose to fame however as a dancer and a courtesan. She had many famous lovers including composer Franz Liszt and the King of Bavaria. Scandal followed her across Europe with observers equally shocked and titillated by her activities.

The film is recommended by Ninos Fenek Mikelidis.
