  • With the exception of the 12th entry I have now seen every film (hanging head in shame) of this long running 70's German series, and this is actually one of the most entertaining.

    Like all the rest it's kind of a portmanteau of stories, some sexier and/or funnier than others. The first story is a "he said/she said", sub-"Rashomon" type thing about a schoolgirl who gets in a very compromising position with her English teacher after he agrees to tutor her after hours. The second story features the best-looking girl (Marianne DuPont), but is a fairly pedestrian story of a young woman trying (and trying and trying. . .) to not only lose her virginity, but find true sexual satisfaction. The third story involves a mischievous girl who agrees to give it up to her artist boyfriend if he first agrees to seduce her young stepmother and break up her father's marriage. (This story in particular would have probably worked better if all three actors involved didn't look to be about thirty). The fourth and best story is about a couple who try to get over on the girl's strict parents in a rather novel way--the girl pretends to be possessed by the devil and the boyfriend poses as a priest, and the whole thing turns into a genuinely hilarious parody of "The Exorcist", (and is actually a lot more entertaining than "Magdalena", director Walter Boos' "serious" rip-off of "The Exorcist" a few years earlier).

    The last story features the only really recognizable actress, Gina Janssen, a Jesus Franco regular and erstwhile Danish porn star. She's appears in a rather lame tale of a girl who is dumped by her older married lover and gets back at him by going out with his handsome nephew. Janssen and some of the other girls look none-too-svelte here. They're sexy but definitely kind of plus size (although I do prefer to see big boobs on bigger girls as opposed to the surgically enhanced 36 DDs on girls that are otherwise borderline anorexic, which is what we have today). Also, while the earlier actresses in this series like Christine Linberg, Ingrid Steeger, Ulrike Butz, and Marie Ekorre never looked like ACTUAL schoolgirls, they were in their late teens/early twenties and at least were believable as such. This entry though might have been called "Life Begins at 35" because all the actresses, besides being more full-figured, also look to be at least ten years out of secondary school. So while this is definitely one of the more entertaining entries, it's not necessarily one of the sexiest and doesn't really succeed as SCHOOLGIRL exploitation (which is perhaps why Walter Boos went in the exact opposite direction and cast the notoriously young Katja Beinert in some of his subsequent entries in the series).

    Still this film is pretty fun and I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud during a sex film like I did with the "Exorcist" story here. . .

    But for this franchise, it was really time to end. The recent films have been consistently bad and yet, after this one, there were still three more. They made 13 films between 1970 and 1980. really prolific, but quickly only means to make money and the films had no quality features indeed anymore, unless you count the physics of some of the female actresses. Certainly not their range though. And there were also some changes. No more street interviews and they tried to make them more comedic. Sadly these approaches included the likes of fart humor on several occasions, so that they were just never funny. It seems they ran out of material as this movie also only went for under 80 minutes, while most of the previous films were around the 1.5-hour mark.

    This film here came out roughly half a year after the ninth movie. The director is Walter Boos again. He directed previous "Schulmädchen" movies already and also worked on the German Oscar nominee "The Devil came at night" 20 years earlier. The film's writer is Günther Heller. He wrote all of the "Schulmädchen" films. You will see a very young Heiner Lauterbach in this movie, early 20s and still with long hair. Also, you may have heard of cast members Max Grießer and Annemarie Wendl, both known in Germany.

    There is nothing new to these films anymore. Nothing you have not seen in a similar way in earlier films already. Moral is the core of this movie, so basically all the sequences deal with this issue. Be it photos of cheating partners, relationships with great age gaps or starting to date your ex-girlfriend's former step-wife. All of them morally wrong, but not legally wrong matters. Oh and there is a massive Exorcist parody in this one. You know the way, in which the priest gets the devil out of her, don't you? Yep, exactly like this. Church and sex. Another taboo, they were not scared of anymore. Sadly, it was never a funny parody and the sexual scenes are not particularly arousing anymore either. On a random side-note, one of the actors looked exactly like Justus von Dohnányi. I think it was Paul Glawion. Anyway, bad movie. Don't waste your time and the final moral sentence about schoolgirls by the narrator has just become pretty cringeworthy by now and here, it is particularly bad.
