Really, I don't know what the point is to making these films. This, you'll find in the Adult section of your local video store. S.S. Erotica, we'll call it, but there's nothing erotic to it. Quite a bit of nudity and painfully robotic acting, I was having a few "What the f.ck moments"? It takes it self too seriously, considering it's genre, while it's also un erotic. I actually wandered off a few times, from this boring stiff sex/drama, where a few anti Hitler party are taken out. Hitler's utilized a lot here, where shown a few photos of the beast, we somehow, feel, it's trying to impress, if to make a ligit film. There are some inner amusing moments, though inside I really wasn't laughing, but it was Hitler's admirers, speaking a few wonderful words about the man. I can't believe they let some kids act in this too. Forgettable, all the way. A sleeper. I'm just warning ya. Heil nothing.
