Storyline

An expedition discovers blonde 16 year-old Liane venerated by the native tribe in the African jungle and returns her to Hamburg where she is welcomed by her grandfather, ship tycoon Von Amelongen. His nephew Schoening, present head of the firm and prospective heir, tries all to stop his uncle from acknowledging her, including perjury, destruction of evidence, and finally resorting to murder. He dies in an accident driving his car into the river in his flight from the police. There is a subplot around a love quadrangle centered around Thoren, who is secretly loved by biologist Jacqueline who is in turn courted by Hungarian Tibor. Thoren plays paternal protector to Liane before succumbing to her youthful charm and returning with her to the jungle. Written by Michael Jurich <jurich@rummelplatz.uni-mannheim.de>

Thoren: Well well, you must've had a fight with Danner, eh?
Tibor Teleky: Of course not, but you mustn't feel angry because I can manage monkeys and women better than you.
Thoren: Well, that just means I have three idiots to take care of now.

When I say that it's a jungle out there, you believe me!
1 January 2016 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It's clear that this movie's target audience is 14-year-old boys. "Liane, das Mädchen aus dem Urwald" ("Liane, Jungle Goddess" in English) has little purpose beyond showing off Marion Michael's body, especially the upper half. And boy is there something to show off! I understand that Marion Michael was known as Germany's answer to Brigitte Bardot. As expected, the movie got treated as an adults-only movie upon its initial release (although you can bet money that a number of boys went to see it and it helped them become men).

Obviously the movie has a colonial mentality in its depiction of the Africans. That's to be expected. We can understand that and simply luxuriate in all the shots of Marion Michael swinging from the vines wearing as little as was allowed.
