The impending approach of Venus - known to cause "disturbing erotic behavior" - sends two men with very different missions to the town of Petit-Bois. One to save the schoolgirls from lust, the other to test a new aphrodisiac. Chaos ensues.
Handlingen foregår i en liten by hvor en bordell og en astrologisk pikeskole med en skarp, jomfruelig lærerinne. Da planeten Venus en dag passerer solen, skjer det en masse. Den skjeldne passasjen har en merkelig innflytelse på personer født i jomfruens tegn. Spesielt med henblikk på seksuelle utfoldelser. Written by
This is the first of the notorious Danish "astrological" series. While I wouldn't really recommend this whole series (which eventually turned into latter-day spy spoofs featuring one "Agent 69"), it's definitely worth checking one of them out since you're probably unlikely to see a films like this anywhere else(if you don't happen to Danish anyway), and this one is probably as good of as any. These films are kind of halfway between softcore sexploitation comedy and harcore porn. Like the former they are fairly long on plot and have relatively high production values. They also have some respectable actors in non-sex roles (although since they're Danish no one will probably recognize them). Like hardcore porn films though they do have some obviously unsimulated sex scenes (like one girl with her tongue in another girl's rectum in the first five minutes of the movie!).
Due to astrological events, the planet Venus is going to come very close to the earth, which the state authorities suspect is going to have adverse "erotic" effects on the "innocent virgins" at one particular "school for delinquent girls". (I'm not sure why this event would only affect one single girls' school in Denmark or how these girls can be both "delinquents" and "innocent virgins", but you kind of have to go with it). Unbeknownst to the authorities, the girls at the school are ALREADY a bunch of crazed lesbian nymphos, but an agent is duly sent to deliver a drug that will lower the libido of the girls. Unfortunately, when he gets to town and asks for directions, he ends up at the WRONG "house full of young girls" (the local brothel) and, even worse, manages to get his formula mixed with that of a mad scientist who has invented a powerful aphrodesiac. You can imagine what happens.
Aside from one rather unpleasant girl-on-girl gang rape scene, this movie has a surprisingly innocent tone, not unlike the silly British sex comedies of that era, but obviously it is much stronger stuff as far as the sex goes. The real draw-back of the graphic sex scenes though is the movie has somewhat skankier-looking girls than the Scandinavian lovelies that went to Britain to make tamer British sex comedies or Germany to make the softcore "schulmadchen-report" type films or that appeared in less graphic Scandinavian movies. There is no one in this movie that looks like Christine Lindberg or Marie Lilljhedahl or Yutte Stensgaard (girls that look like that generally don't have to put their tongues in each other's rectums to get movie roles). Interestingly, Anna Bergman, the pretty daughter of renowned Swedish director Igemar Bergman, appeared in some of the later films in this series, but she used a body double for the graphic sex.
This is definitely a weird film, and perhaps worth seeing simply for that reason. As Jack Stevenson wrote in his recent book "Scandinavian Blue" this film and others in this series are kind of like "hardcore porn for the whole family".
