You all know the Alp comedies. Healthy looking young German girls (blondes mainly, of course) are surrounded by unintelligent men. They seek sex everywhere, but usually something goes wrong: they fall into the water or on a heap of dung, the ladder collapses or one of the ugly old women from the village appears. During the 70's an endless stream of this type of movies was produced, especially in Germany by Alois Brummer, and in Switserland by Ernst Dietrich.
These movies were made from the early 70's onwards. So this is a late one and it shows. The jokes, if present, are all outdated and so are the music and the costumes. The sex is mainly soft core, but some scenes are hardcore. The early movies had soft core only, a lot of jokes and a story line. The story of this movie only serves as a frame to present as many sex scenes as possible.
Three (Bavarian?) girls live in a small village in the Alps. In a student exchange project however, they are able to spend a few days in Paris. This calls upon celebrating their departure. The uncle of one of the girls, he's a priest, throws a goodbye party. Before they can enjoy sex with their boyfriends, the priest has to be drugged. Then they can have sex. Next morning they leave for Paris. Upon arrival the three girls can have sex. Next are some outings in Paris, after which they can have sex. Then it is time to go home. Luckily during the farewell party they can have sex.
And that is all this movie has to offer. The lame jokes luckily do not interfere too much. The three girls are quite pretty, even though Eleonore Melzer, a veteran of the genre, does not take part in the hardcore scenes. In the middle this movie comes to a complete stand still when we have to see all the obligatory scenes of Paris for minutes on end: the Seine, the Eiffeltower, the Arc de Triomph, you know the stuff. Also an obvious relic from earlier times.
Judging by both the year it was produced and the running time, there is no doubt on my mind various versions were produced. Soft core versions probably run for some 85 minutes. The hard core version I saw had a running time of 103 minutes. But the beautiful Christa Ludwig made it worth my time.
The acting was adequate for stupid sex comedies like these. The direction was so so and the other aspects of this movie needn't be mentioned. All in all a lame, slow paced porn movie with lots of distractions, which didn't add to its tolerability. For me a 3 out of 10.
