Bodacious Blast from the Past, 24 May 2006
Author: Dries Vermeulen (Nodriesrespect) from Brugge, Belgium

This might be the quintessential German soft porn comedy of the early '70s, an era of innocence now lost to us forever. Helmed by one of the great workhorses of the period (Franz Antel who made most of the FRAU WIRTIN/SEXY SUSAN movies) and cast with many familiar faces and bodies, it's the perfect test case flick to determine whether this particular brand of fun 'n' fluff is for you.

Smalltown pharmacist Willibald (popular folksy comedian Paul Löwinger in a typically broad performance) is upset when his eldest daughter Elisabeth (soon to become US B movie staple Sybill Danning)has lost yet another job due to assumed indecent behavior. Especially since his other two daughters, blonde Christel (Prague-born Alena Penz) and brunette Maria (Eva Garden), are such shining examples of virtue. Unbeknownst to daddy, both girls actually have lovers that come to spend the night with them, while Elisabeth on the other hand has been falsely accused time and again and turns out to be...a virgin ! Afraid that she'll tell on them, Christel and Maria conspire to put a man into their sister's bed to solve this prickly problem and lure her over to their side. To this effect, they prepare an industrial strength aphrodisiac from a centuries old tome in their father's medical library. Of course, things don't turn out as planned, not even when Elisabeth (forcefully accompanied by Maria) accompanies her employer, handsome Doctor Marcus Koerner (Claus Tinney), to a congress in wicked old Munich. Will Elisabeth succumb to the charms of this or, indeed, any man ? Will her sisters be free to live and love whoever they choose or will they shrivel in enforced chastity ? See and find out.

Though the fever pitch acting style of the older generation and the comedy of mistaken identities that takes up the latter part of the movie may wear some viewers down, these are exactly the ingredients that endear the genre to its true fans. Having seen the film again for the first time in over two decades (I caught it as a lad of 16 at the local flea pit, now sadly long gone), I was surprised to see just how well it holds up. Much of the film's funny bits (even the crude - yet good-natured - gay caricatures that pop up from time to time) still made me laugh out loud and the skin quotient remains reassuringly high. Danning, Garden and Penz are three of the most stunning creatures ever to disrobe within a single movie. Blonde beauty Britt Corvin (as Willibald's new maid Mirli) beefs up the cheesecake quota even more. Those interested should check her out further in Joe Sarno's superb BABY LOVE. And then there's the only recently deceased Christiane Maybach as loose aunt Lilofee, an actress who went from Marilyn Monroe lookalike in the early '60s via skin flicks such as this (where she supplied the nudity along with girls many years her junior) to dark R.W. Fassbinder art-house dramas (FAUSTRECHT DER FREIHEIT, SATANSBRATEN) to daytime TV drama at millennium's end ! Speaking of which, keep your eyes peeled for a very youthful Sascha Hehn as Peter, Christel's boyfriend, who would go on to hausfrau super stardom as one of the leads on insanely popular soap DER SCHWARZWALDKLINIK. I wonder how many of those bored (desperate ?) homemakers realized that their latest heart throb had toiled in the seamier side of film-making for many years, with Hubert Frank's MELODY IN LOVE and PATRICIA being the undisputed highlights from this stage of his career. Colorfully photographed and blessed with a jaunty soundtrack that immediately screams German sexploitation, BLUTJUNG UND LIEBESHUNGRIG stands proud as one of the finest examples of its kind, a mix of laughs and leers that will delight the fans who should treasure this little gem for as long as they have the ability to draw breath.
