What a hoot!, 13 August 2009
Author: lazarillo from Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile

This hilariously inept Italian movie was obviously, uh, inspired by the German art film "Christiane F", which was about a young teenage junkie and prostitute. If you like "Christiane F.", you will probably hate this though because it's almost an unintentional parody of that film. On the other hand, if you find the German film rather heavy-handed, moralistic, and depressing, this is frankly a lot more fun.

"Hanna D." is played by Ana-Gisel Glass, who looks too old to be a young teenager (she was actually about twenty) and too healthy to be a junkie. This is no doubt for the best, however, since she spends a lot of her screen-time butt-naked and/or engaged in various sexual situations. Glass surprisingly went on to a long career in Germany, but her only previous credit was as one of David Hamilton's barely-legal model/actresses in "First Desires". 'Hannah's" booze-soaked mother meanwhile is played by veteran European sex star Karin Schubert (who ironically later dove into hardcore porn to support her own drug habit). Schubert, and the woman who dubbed her here, should have shared some kind of special alternate Academy Award for this hilariously overwrought performance. There's plenty of sordid stuff here--prostitution, anal drug smuggling, murders, gratuitous sex, gratuitous showers, topless dancing, prison scenes, shooting up, ad infinitum--but it's hard to take any of this seriously. From the opening scene featuring a school-uniform-seduction-on-a-commuter-train (which I imagine went over like gang-busters in Japan), to a ridiculous scene where "Hanna" gets in a fight with her pimp and then goes into the next room and takes all her clothes off for no apparent reason, to the laughable finale containing the most unconvincing drowning in the history of the dramatic arts, it's 90 minutes of sheer cinematic ineptitude.

The incredibly generic plot has "Hanna" torn between her brutal pimp and a nice guy she falls in love with. Although credited to "Axel Berg" this was actually written and directed by the infamous Italian Rino DiSivestri, who gave the world "Werewolf Woman" and "Deported Women of the SS". I actually liked his first film "Woman in Cellblock 7", however, and I understand he actually received letters of thanks from real prostitutes for his movie "Red Light Girls". I can't imagine ANYBODY recognizing themselves in this movie though even if it was allegedly inspired by "real events". But what a hoot!
