The adventures of Elisa, Marian and Susi in Sexland
11 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

"Las que empiezan a los quince años" tells the story of the sexual adventures of three fifteen'year old girls: Elisa, Marian and Susi.

Elisa lives with her father and her stepmother. Her father, drown in debts by reason of bad business decisions, has to run away from his debtors. Elisa remains with her stepmother that has no love left for her. Soon Elisa is out in the streets. One of the roads left for her is prostitution. Her life will be one of many adventures and misadventures.

Marian, very early in her life, became a prostitute. She had known a good-looking guy in a party. She falls in love with him, but in reality he's a pimp. One day they have a fight and Marian decides to become independent. She opens the doors of the cars and ask the drivers if they want some company. On seeing this beautiful lolita, many say that, yes, they could do with a bit of company.

Susi's family has no financial problems. Her father works a lot and is always absent, but her mother likes and understands her. Susi likes girls. She sometimes plays innocent little games with Elisa and Marian.

There's no doubt that "Las que empiezan a los quince años" is an exploitation film. Many exploitation films try to hide their nature by assuming the form of a cautionary tale. In this way, the morality watchdogs are partially appeased. This doesn't happen here. "Las que empiezan a los quince años" gives no excuses.

The film offers a rosy vision of prostitution, but anyway it had no intention at all of being a documentary. The film wants to titillate, and it delivers. The girls frequently take off their clothes, make love, laugh, giggle etc.. but there are not graphic sex scenes.

"Las que empiezan a los quince años" definitely tells a story, albeit a simple one, and Elisa, Marian and Susi are characters that have a face (unlike what happens in many other films of the genre where the characters are anonymous x, y, and z). The film could be defined as a sexy youth film, with touches of comedy, some dramatic moments and, most important of all, no wagging fingers pointed at us. It's a very joyous film. Franco had died. Sex was not a swear word anymore.

Recommended for you if you're not a puritan.

Contrary to the information given by IMDb the film clocks in at around 110 minutes.
