Strange but entertaining Dutch sex comedy
13 October 2013 | by lazarilloSee all my reviews

A rich but sheltered and impossibly naïve teenage girl (Nada Van Nie) runs away from her convent school to experience the world, while to save face, the nuns pretend she was kidnapped.

This Dutch sex comedy is rather unusual as sex comedies go. The plot of a naïve but sexually curious young woman leaving school to have lots of sexual adventures is, of course, pretty old hat in European "Emmanuelle" knock-offs like "Blue Belle", "Vanessa", and "Felicity". But this movie takes itself less seriously and is content to be a goofy 80's sex comedy rather 70's-style European softcore fare. In this sense it has more in common with the American sex comedies of the era, but those were generally filtered through the lens of "Last American Virgin" and "Porky's" and were usually about ridiculously horny males (or sometimes their female equivalents) trying to "lose it". This sheltered character may or may be destined to "lose it" by the end of the movie, but most of the comedy is not about her efforts, but about how everyone else reacts to this incredibly voluptuous, impossibly naïve, and always very under-dressed teenager. It might actually be CLOSEST to a 50's/early 60's Marilyn Monroe or Jane Mansfield movie in this respect.

Dutch actress Nada Van Nie actually has a body that is not that far away at all from a young Marilyn Monroe or Jane Mansfield, and you get to see much more of it than in a 50's movie (albeit much less of it than in a European "Emmanuelle" knock-off). I did not know, for instance, girls in Catholic schools were not allowed to look at themselves naked in mirrors, but her character here sure spends a lot of time doing it after she escapes from the convent. She also nearly winds up in a porn movie at one point (something you never saw in a Monroe or Mansfield movie). But, of course, she finds true love too. Van Nie is a great asset to this movie with her incredible looks more than making up for her merely passable acting. As soon as she leaves the convent and changes into her low-cut and blouse and micro-mini-skirt ensemble, she'll hook pretty much any viewer that would watch something like this in the first place. Of course, this movie never rises above being a dubbed and rather dimwitted Euro-sex comedy, but it's quite entertaining as far as those go.
