Apart from a couple of notable exceptions (like "Helga, She Wolf of the SS" and "Salon Kitty") Nazi Exploitation flicks are pretty much the worst kind of cult movies. This is mainly due to a combination of dull or even a complete absence of story content and an overload of randomly tasteless and perverted sleaze footage. Jess Franco's "Convoy of Girls" hardly features any smutty images, strangely enough, and thus all that remains is the totally uninteresting storyline and a whole lot of irrelevant stock footage that doesn't make a lick of sense. "Convoy of Girls" tells the supposedly heartbreaking story of the successful Nazi officer Erich Von Strässer (seriously, you can't get an more Arian than this guy) who suddenly turns against the Third Reich regime out of love for his high school sweetheart Renata. When he signed up to serve his country in battle, she and her father illegally hid a Jewish girl in Berlin. He later meets her in a brothel where she's forced to work as a prostitute whilst her father got sent to a concentration camp. Von Strässer uses his influence and power as a decorated Nazi officer to save her, but nevertheless discovers afterwards that she was put on a convoy train to Russia. Where's this world coming to if you can't even trust the Nazi regime? This is a very boring film with bleak characters you honestly don't care for one bit. The narrative is extremely incoherent and the footage borrowed from other movies is all too easily recognized. The opening shows Von Strässer fighting in a tropical desert and later on he's supervising German troops in snowy Russia. The lack of sleazy and nudity is particularly bizarre since IMDb credits both Jess Franco and Pierre Chevalier as directors. They're genuine masters of sleaze and other deviance. The film only features a couple of (ugly) topless brothel girls and one too many images of Von Strässer's naked bottom. So, even the most die-hard fanatics of Euro-sleaze have absolutely no reason to track down this film.
