I’ve reviewed several of the Schoolgirl Report films in the past here on Rogue Cinema. If you’ve seen any of my past reviews, you’ll already know what to expect with this one. For those who haven’t, these are basically softcore German sex films that are comprised of multiple stories in each volume, all tied together by an arch story, which in this case, is a radio panel discussing what effect the morals laws in Germany have had on teenage sexuality and freedom.
As for each of the stories, here’s what we have in this volume:
First Story. Maria is in the 11th grade and her father is a police sergeant. She’s 17 and an only child. Her and her classmate Rolf get caught cheating on a test in class, and he ends up tutoring her, while at the same time, they’re having a sexual affair. When he suddenly stops tutoring her, she goes over to his place and finds another naked girl in his bed. She gets so depressed after that, she starts taking pills, and eventually meets a troubled end.
Second Story: Regine is 18, and she claims that her private tutor, a professor at the university, raped her. It’s only the professor’s dog that will determine who’s telling the truth, and who’s lying.
Third Story: The board operator girl at the radio station tells the other board operator about her first experience with a guy. Her and her friend Gila meet two virgin guys in a barn for a little sexual exploration, which ends up having disastrously amusing results.
Fourth Story: Michaela is a beautiful girl who used to be a good student, but now her grades have fallen and she’s become a loner. She eventually sends a suicide note to her professor explaining why. After finding and picking up a 100 mark bill, three guys claim it’s theirs and they blackmail her into becoming a sex slave or they’re going to turn her in for stealing it. They use her for porn shoots and let their friends have sex with her one after another. Finally, one of the guys at the sex party got her alone, and helped her escape. Now she’s going to kill herself, and she tells the professor in the letter where they can find her body. He rushes to save her, but will he be too late?
Fifth Story: A girl turns 18 and is encouraged by her friends to finally have sex. One of them even pushes off her cousin on her, because he has a reputation for being a real stud. She meets the cousin, and it turns out that he’s actually a virgin. He just made up some stories and people blew them out of proportion and suddenly he had this reputation. They fake sex just to placate her friends, but then when he takes her home, things heat up, and you can imagine where things went from there.
This film wasn’t as good or as fun as some of the previous films. The girl in the third story who played Gila was the same girl from the previous volume who was so absolutely hilarious pretending she was possessed. In this one however, while she had a bit of silliness to her part, it wasn’t anything compared to the possession thing in Volume #10.
I guess for me, this film was more of a downer. It had its fun moments, but they were sort of cancelled out by the darker moments. In the end, between the ups and the downs, a lot of it just felt sort of blah. The good parts were good, the dark parts were depressing, and mixing the two just didn’t work. I wish they’d have kept it lighter like the others. The part about the girl being raped by her tutor was ripped off from one of the other volumes as well. It had a different ending, but the theme was the same.
In the end, it was just ok. It wasn’t one of my favorite Schoolgirl Report volumes, but it wasn’t that bad either. If you’re a collector of these films, you’ll want to add this one to your collection. If you’re just starting a collection, or if you just want to see what the Schoolgirl Report films are all about, I’d suggest starting with Volume #10 before checking out any of the others. I think #10 is probably my favorite of all the ones I’ve seen, so it’s a good place to start.
