Swinging London, Flares and Tits. What more could you want?
A sometimes hilarious soft porn film made in the 1970's, The Adolescents is bizarre for those who get to see the english version. Filmed in England with english actors Koo Stark and Anthony Andrews, but made by a Spanish company who obviously made it to dub into Spanish for the spanish market. For the english version, they decided to re-dub it in english using different actors for the voices than the ones who starred in it, therefore giving the english actors some peculiar foreign accents. In fact I'm convinced that the woman who dubbed Koo Stark's voice, used to do the english dubbing for the character Tripitaka in the hilariously camp Japanese series "Monkey".
Basically The Adolescents deals with a rather reserved girl (Stark)who attends a private boarding school in England who gets seduced by a young ruffian (Andrews)who takes her back to his apartment where hidden cameras are placed behind groovy 70's furniture for the purpose of getting pornographic material for magazines in Denmark, which justifies I suppose, the copius amounts of Tit shots. However, having said that, the film is handled a lot better than other trashy American Tits and Bum films. There is an actual point to the nudity, unlike other films where people for some reason trim their hedges in the nude. But in all honesty, the best thing about this film is its extensive location filming of London right slap bang in the middle of the 1970's. So if you want to catch footage of swinging London in those glorious old days, check it out.
