Storyline

A teenage girl is caught petting with the bus driver during an outing. The school's parent council discusses her punishment. One parent, a psychologist, suggests that her behavior is not abnormal or worthy of expulsion. He describes teen girls' experiments with sex, and these dramatized vignettes, interspersed with man-in-the-street interviews with young women about their attitudes and experiences, make a case for 60's generation's attitude of independence. The girls argue for telling the truth in the face of post-war German convention. In the end, will Renata be expelled or recognized as a girl from a new era? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Schoolgirl Report #1 (1970)

*** (out of 4)

Mondo style documentary was the first of thirteen films that were produced in German during a ten year span. These films were the most popular but there were countless other rips including Jess Franco's hilarious Virgin Report. In the film, a schoolgirl is caught having sex with her bus driver and it's up to the parents league to determine whether she should be kicked out of school. In the meeting is a psychiatrist who studies the behaviors of teenage girls and he tells the parents what their daughters are really doing. There are a variety of stories told in the film including a daughter getting caught by her mother masturbating, a girl thinking about losing her virginity and a young girl seducing her teacher among others. These types of mondo documentaries are pretty fun and this one here delivers on the nudity and sex, which is probably what make these studies so popular back in the day. There's one hilarious segment where four virgins, acting as if they've already had sex, do it too close to some white paint. Original title: Schulmädchen-Report: Was Eltern nicht für möglich halten.
