The Dutch Institute in Paris celebrates film star Sylvia Kristel

By Colette Davidson

The Dutch film star Sylvia Kristel died in October last year after a battle with cancer. While she was much loved in her home country, she found great success here in France when she took the leading role in the French film Emmanuelle. The Dutch Institute in Paris celebrated Silvia Kristel's life last week with film clips and discussion about her career and her life.
