The Beauty of physical Love with more than one Person
This little oddity is has more to offer than is visible at first sight. Admitably, the title "Horny Henry" does not help to distinguish it from the dozens of cheap German sex comedies than came out in the 70s. And in the very end, this one joins the club by turning into a Benny Hill-like screwballistic exaggeration. Still, it starts off as a quite funny tale of a couple (he's a dentist, she inevitably for the time housewife and mom). Upon the rise of the '68-movement, the intellectual husband tries to persuade his rather conservative wife to try out group sex: that's what modern and unprejudiced people do nowadays! The whole plot is reflected by her voice over reflection on his demands. Finally she agrees; but the two couples that are invited make the whole evening a mess. Expectations are (too) high, capabilities are too low, and there's the inevitable collision of a decent upper-middle-class lifestyle with the idea but only the idea of wild, crazy, outgoing sexuality. If flawed as a comedy, "Heinrich" today says quiet a lot of the time of it's creation. For that it's worth a look.
