Presented for the viewers gratification are 12 European hardcore short subjects (some shorter than others) which all manage to provide interest on some level, if only for the brief travelogue aspects of some entries.
‘Love-In’ has an interesting concept as a whole party of hedonistic hippies go into a field, eat bread, sausage, and wine, then drop their duds and start shagging away. The biggest fault here is the quite unnecessary inclusion of ‘body double’ inserts that don’t match and the shame shots are shown repeatedly. The nude dancing segment featuring all the girls pretty much saves this one.
A graphic close-up of a banana being abused eventually pulls back to reveal two ‘schoolgirls’ riding in a compartment on a train. They each pleasure themselves for awhile until a priest happens down the hall and looks through the glass windows and door of the compartment. After sensibly closing the curtain, he demands the girls pay penance. There are some bits of humor here including a twist ending making this an enjoyable episode.
The remaining shorts mostly feature bare bone plots to set up situations where lots of hairy people shag like crazy. Brothels are a popular topic, and one spoofs a television show. A few of the ladies are a bit plump, and all are hairy including underarms. Women’s makeup varies widely depending upon the setting. There is some mild kink (bondage, toys) but other than some girl/girl action this mostly features straight heterosexual couplings.
Original soundtracks are provided with 70’s music for the silent titles. Two USA loops are included as a bonus, both featuring stewardesses. Image quality varies per selection but is mostly good or better and newly transferred from film elements.
