"Bordel SS" recalls the time when hardcore films were just that; real movies, shot on actual film stock. Most of them were still pretty weak, despite having the larger budgets. This WWII porn epic is an exception; competent, professional camera work, realistic period costumes, fine soundtrack, and best of all, a script that is both interesting and historically accurate. THIS is a true example of how hardcore can become art. What is so remarkable about this one is, even though it shows hardcore sex, (erections, on screen penetration etc), there are no cheap close ups of genitalia. Normally in porn films there are endless scenes where the camera zooms in on genitalia. But here, those cheap shots are noticeably absent. The result is an erotic film that is sexy, without being vulgar. The sex is still on the screen, but here you can always see full bodies, and faces, and therefore don't lose connection with the characters and parts they are playing. The camera work is excellent, so much so that you feel that you are watching a mainstream film. Featuring excellent music that is appropriate to the period, as well as realistic Nazi uniforms that look better than costumes in some Hollywood productions. Obviously influenced by the Tinto Brass epic "Salon Kitty," but in some ways "Bordel SS" is even better, as it omits the silly comic bits that dragged down a lot of the "naziploitation" movies of the era. Especially valuable to fans of Brigitte Lahaie, as this is one of her earliest appearances. Recommended for cult film fans, as well as WW2 buffs; it is THAT good. In terms of quality, this one is up there with Radley Metzger's "The Image."
