Although Ann Zacharias speaks French, her native Swedish accent was still deemed strong enough to justify dubbing over her entire performance. The voice heard in the finished film belongs to director Nelly Kaplan. See more »

sleazy in some parts but overall a bit tame
26 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Mid seventies everything was possible. On 42nd they had their glory days with porn, in Europe they were doing erotic flicks. Some became notorious as Emmanuelle (1974)or as Spielen wir Liebe (Maladolescenza 1977)or Ultimo tango a Parigi (1972). The last two became famous due young actresses going nude with an age mostly just on the border of youngsters. Maladolescenza is still not released due 14 year old ones going naked all the way. Nevertheless, it was a time to shock viewers with themes' about youngsters searching out how to make love.

Nea is also a perfect example. It clocked in on the success of Emmanualle because it was also called Nea: A Young Emmanuelle. But the German release said it all, Die erotischen Phantasien einer 16 Jährigen.

It's about a 16 year old girl (Ann Zacharias)trying to write an erotic novel. She succeeds and finds a publisher (Sami Frey). He agrees. But she wants to find out more about love and by seeing her mother having a lesbian affair which she's watching, she decides to find out what love is all about and starts a relation with the publisher. But the publisher is of course messing around with other girls. She's out for revenge.

No don't think to see blood or whatsoever. The reason I watched it is because the way she's taking revenge is a bit sleazy. She knows a guy who never had love and she takes him in her room to make use of his semen for the revenge, that part is sleazy but never becomes explicit. In fact, up to today's standards it's a bit low on everything. It do contains nudity and frontal male nudity but as I said, never becomes explicit. The theme about a 16 year old wanting sex with an adult was a shocker back then. But Maladolescenza and Last Tango In Paris were more shocking due the age of the youngsters. Still, it's fun to watch how she seducing the publisher and when she's playing with herself it's being edited with a cat, one to see. Sometimes funny but never shocking, still, if you want to see sleaze from France watch it or go for Une Vraie Jeunne Fille from the same year. All about the same theme, searching for the perfect sex.
