Storyline

It's summer, and the air is quivering with passion, as teenager Pauli, who stays at boarding school travels to a small seaside town to enjoy the holidays with his family. On the train he gets to know the attractive woman, in whose compartment he sits down immediately after he has risked a glimpse into the section of the sleeping beauty. A little later, she vanishes and has sex with a stranger on the train toilet. He is thunderstruck at the train station when his father picks up not only him but also her. The unfaithful blonde, Yvonne is obviously the mistress of his own father. The mood in the villa is heated up from the beginning sexually: His womanizer father and sexy Yvonne, a crazy grandmother, Mimi, a cuckolded uncle, Alex his oversexed lesbian wife, Myriam and the lesbian maid, Silvana. Soon he meets his old neighbor Julia, who turns out to be an 18-year-old beauty. Like Pauli, she is still a virgin, but perhaps this summer, when they both lose their innocence, will be to each ...

Soft porno Violating Genre Rules
31 January 1999 | by SMK-4See all my reviews

One of the unwritten rules for sex films is to depict sex as something enjoyable - perhaps it is a guilty pleasure and some punishment may be afoot, but a pleasure nonetheless. Another is that a once initiated sexual encounter always goes ahead - the punters loath prickteasing.

This film dares touching these rules. The story resolves around an upper middle class family during the summer holidays. They are desperately trying to have a good time, and the emphasis is here on "desperately", because they are just not very at good at it. Sex is the only thing that overcomes their boredom, but even that rarely suffices. This lethargic lot is very hard to excite - the only time anyone got really upset was mother Hildegard when her husband's mistress told her at the family diner table that she was now sleeping with her teenage son as well.

Make no mistake: this is a softporno and nothing else, it does not have a message of any kind. But it is much less predictable than the average genre flick and that makes for much more interesting viewing.

Note: the UK release has an attempted rape scene (Pauli on Ivanna) cut, which is a bit of a shame as it explains the family's subsequent trip to Italy.
