| Run of the mill coming of age film
Anna is 17 and has hit that age where sexuality has hit big time. She goes to an all-girls Catholic school, coupled with a negligent businessman of a father and a disinterested yoga fanatic mother, this leaves Anna with a lot of proverbial angst and teenage daydreams of nuns without robes and maybe some man could "deflower" her and take her away from this prison where her parents still treat her like a child.

Much of what is seen is kinda what you expect from a cheap, German film of the time...it's surprisingly easy on the sleaze, and heavy on the melodramatic pain of being a teenager who wants to get rid of their virginity. What's really surprising is that this is directed by Zbynek Brynych, who filmed gloomy yet gripping films Transport From Paradise and The Fifth Horseman is Fear. There almost seems to be almost no correlation between the films.

If you want a film that doesn't tax your brain too much and enjoy some light nudity to go with it, it should be fine. If you were left thoroughly haunted by Transport From Paradise and The Fifth Horseman Is Fear and had a genuine thirst for more of the same, you might be in for a surprise.
