Jenny and the Gentleman in tails
16 October 2003 | by ( – See all my reviews

This is one of the titles currently released on DVD by PTM Entertainment in a beautiful picture quality which is common to their series of Johannes Heesters movies - probably to celebrate his 100th (!) birthday, which will take place late in 2003. This particular mishmash, a comedy/triller about stolen jewels, is a pointless (and a songless) b-picture, which can not be redeemed even by glimpse of bare brests, owned by a very beautiful anonymous fan dancer. It fails to take off, and you shouldn't toy with it unless you are absolutely fluent in German - there are no subtitles.
