A watchable Eurocine Nazisploitation pic—wonders never cease.
4 December 2013 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

When red-headed Russian doctor Nathalie Baxova (Patrizia Gori) falls foul of the Nazis, she finds herself imprisoned at Fort Stilberg, a luxury brothel for German top brass where the women are overseen by sadistic lesbian officer Helga Hortz (Jacqueline Laurent). Nathalie's medical skills (which seem to comprise of simply dabbing the patient with a wet cloth) bring her to the attention of nice Nazi Lieutenant Erich Muller (Jack Taylor), who saves the lovely lady from becoming one of the establishment's 'hostesses' by assigning her to the infirmary. Given the freedom of the château, Nathalie is able to carry out a secret mission to locate missing British undercover agent Ingrid, but with Helga bearing a grudge against both Erich and Nathalie, the brave doctor must be extra careful to avoid suspicion.

In comparison to the more infamous Nazisploitation classicks, Nathalie Rescued From Hell is pretty tame stuff, loaded with nudity and soft-core shenanigans but light on the sadistic violence and mean-spiritedness; however, for a Eurocine production, the film is surprisingly watchable, managing to be more cohesive and engaging than most of their similarly themed output. It definitely helps that this one isn't an awkward patchwork of scenes borrowed from other films, and that there is something actually resembling a plot, but most of the credit must go to its two leading ladies, Gori and Laurent, who go a long way to making this nonsense bearable: Gori's stunning looks and impressive physique make her absolutely captivating throughout, while Laurent is absolutely hilarious, her camp performance (which includes much flexing of a whip and a maniacal cackle) and outrageous attire (PVC thigh-high boots and matching body) making her a memorable movie bitch.
