All That I Love

Sylvia Maria Kristel
28 September 1952 – 17 October 2012

The Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel, best known for her roles in soft-porn films in the 1970s particularly the French hit “Emmanuelle”, has died in Amsterdam at the age of 60.

Over a 30-year career she starred in more than 50 international feature films. But she shot to fame with “Emmanuelle” in 1974, an erotic story set in Bangkok about a bored housewife, her husband, and their many companions.

The movie was followed by work with directors including Alain Robbe-Grillet, Claude Chabrol and Roger Vadim. Later films included “The Nude Bomb” (1980) and “Private Lessons” (1981). She also starred in a 1981 film version of the D.H. Lawrence novel “Lady Chatterley’s Lover”.

“She was known for her erotic work, but she could do a lot more than that,” said Marieke Verharen, her agent. “She is the most famous Dutch actress ever.”
