Postwar Lost Girl
This movie is about a wayward young woman running from her past, who is reunited with her sister after they became separated during the war. While she worked on the streets, the sister established a professional career as a psychologist. But before Martina can move on with her life she must face her history. Jeanette Schultze plays this "vamp" character very well, at once pretty, vulgar, and vulnerable. The camera also presents the viewer with some seductive shots. While the story is melodramatic, it covers the serious ground of war trauma and survival prostitution, though the resolution involves some ridiculous psychology.
