Movie Info

Sirpa Lane was the alluring star of increasingly bizarre erotic entertainment almost yearly in the mid-'70s. There was Roger Vadim's La Jeune Fille Assassinée in 1974, Walerian Borowczyk's La Bête in 1975, and in 1976 came this alarming entry in the Nazi sex subgenre popularized by Il Portiere di Notte. Lane plays Hannah Myer, who oversees a pleasure brothel for German soldiers while hiding the secret that she is really a Jew. The usual shower groping, lesbianism, and eroticized rape scenes ensue, and Giancarlo Sisti makes an impression as a Nazi captain who likes to wear Hannah's underwear while she beats him with a whip. It had all been done before with far more verve in Don Edmonds' notorious 1974 film Ilsa, She-Wolf of the S.S., but at least director Mario Caiano (Amanti d'Oltre Tomba, and credited here as "William Hawkins") avoids some of the more tasteless excesses of the subgenre. Cultists will recognize Roberto Posse, Margherita Horowitz, Piero Lulli, and Gaetano Russo among the cast, but the real surprise is future mainstream star Christiana Borghi as a nude prisoner, a role which she might wish to forget.
