Quotes

[first lines]
Josefine Mutzenbacher: I can't help it, if you don't approve me. I know it might be hard to convince you that I was very unsophisticated, when I first begun. It took me some time to get a little famous. It was a long, hard struggle to reach the position I'm in.

Perhaps the Best Adult Film Ever
24 June 2003 | by (Charlotte, NC) – See all my reviews

X-rated "Sensational Janine" is a must-see/must-own for any lover of "old" ('60s/'70s) erotica. It is the best-known (only-known?) film in the USA by talented German director Hans Billian.

It has EVERYTHING (almost): an interesting and followable story supposedly based on the real life of a famous Viennese prostitute (followed by 'Professional Janine,' a classic in its own right, but with a different actress playing Janine) ... a jaw-droppingly beautiful star (Patricia Rhomberg -- would love to see how she turned out in middle age), her ripe body oozing sexuality in every scene ... male actors who look like regular guys (not gym-rat studs) ... brother-sister sex ... stepfather-stepdaughter sex ... landlady-boarder sex ... sex-with-the-horny-bitch-from-the-alley sex ... priest-penitent sex ... take-me-when-I'm-sleeping sex ... threesomes ... foursomes ... voyeurism ... masturbation ... light S&M ... hand-jobs ... blow-jobs ... lingerie modeling ... in fact just about every kind of sex except anal and animal. Gee, I wonder if Russ Meyer had a hand in making this?

Production values are high, visibility very good, and the pacing and editing commendable. There is wit and snap to the dubbed dialog. Ex: Janine is spying on her mother and a boarder who are shtumping.

Mother: 'We must hurry. Janine will be home any minute.'

Boarder: 'I'm sure Janine knows what it's all about.'

Mother: 'No, I'm sure she's a virgin.'

Janine (to herself): 'Not for long, Mother. I can tell you that.'

As mentioned by another reviewer, the women are refreshingly all-natural, with unshaved bodies. Everyone in the film seems to be enjoying with abandon the greatest gift Mother Nature has bestowed. Rhomberg is so beguiling and charismatic that I'm sure she could have been a star in mainstream films here and overseas if she had been so inclined.

"Sensational Janine" truly is a feel-good movie that some connoisseurs of erotica consider the best adult feature film ever made.
