Trivia

Director Tinto Brass claimed that the actresses who play the prostitutes in Kitty's brothel were all very enthusiastic about their characters. He has said that they told him that liked being able to explore that side of their own personalities. See more »

Goofs

When the general orders the prostitute to put on his boots, she slips them on after taking off only one of her shoes. The shoe she is unfastening also changes from one foot to the other between shots. See more »

Quotes

Kitty Kellermann: Wallenberg, you haven't learned a thing from the Roman Empire. In order to conquer the World one must be able to laugh, sing. Unless you have no intent to close the brothel, only to open a singing school.

User Reviews

Art-house softcore Euro-porn
13 October 1999 | by Big S-2See all my reviews

A visually impressive movie, very arty and with many subtle undertones. Packed full of pulchritudinous young females in various stages of undress and very risque in its day, the film is, however, very ponderous in places, particularly during the first hour.

Basic plot summary: In 1939 Berlin, the Nazi authorities take over the famous Salon Kitty brothel and pack it with new girls of good Aryan stock and impeccable National Socialist credentials. Their mission is to spy on their military officer clients and report back to their controllers about anyone who seems to be wavering from the Party line. All goes well until one of the girls, Marguerite, falls in love with a Luftwaffe pilot who has turned his back on Hitler and all he stands for.
