Ridiculous, sleazy, and hypocritical '70's exploitation
A young Spanish girl (Koo Stark) is sent to a prestigious English boarding school. After enduring the usual hazing rituals she hooks up with two more popular girls and goes off for a weekend in London where all three fall prey to a cabal of sleazy pornographers (led by Jess Franco regular Jack Taylor). This movie starts out as a a fairly serious and realistic movie, but quickly goes off the rails into the soapiest melodrama imaginable. The pornography plot is not only highly hypocritical given how exploitative THIS movie is, but also pretty damn ludicrous: why would pornographers go to such ridiculous lengths to surreptitiously and illegally photograph barely underaged schoolgirls when all they would have had to do was hire girls a couple years older and have them pretend (which is basically what this movie itself did)? On the other hand though, the movie doesn't really revel in its own absurdity by, say, going into giallo territory with a lot of bloody murders (a la one of its obvious models "What Have You Done to Solange?"), but remains a staid and rather dull melodrama (at least, aside from one potentially offensive interracial rape scene).
The main attraction here is Koo Stark, who was the first love of Britain's Prince Andrew, but was pushed aside because she wasn't a buck-toothed, inbred hillbilly blue-blood like Sarah Ferguson (and because she appeared in movies like this). She is very appealing here and quite good despite having to spend most of the movie as a repressed, bookish schoolgirl with thick glasses and a dubbed Spanish accent. Spanish actress, Cristina Galbo, from "Solange?", also has a very small (and completely superfluous) role, but naturally, like all the girls in this movie, she is on screen long enough to take her clothes off.
They certainly don't make 'em like this anymore in this age of starchy political correctness and "social responsibility" and that in itself may be reason to see this ridiculous, sleazy, and hypocritical piece of 70's exploitation.
