Olga's Sommer (2002)
This film must be after some kind of rare obscurity
record. Although Clemence Poesy is now known internationally (she was
in the last Harry Potter film), this film doesn't seem to be available
on home media. Even IMDb comes up empty-handed. They say it was
screened at the Moscow Film Festival in 2002, and had a brief, limited
run in French theaters that same year.
In fact, the damned movie is so obscure that I could
not verify that these caps are what they purport to be! I am accepting
them on faith.
After the new stuff, I added a few more to give you a
taste of the Poesy beauty. My favorite collage is Charlie's first one
from "Roses," in which Clemence looks very much like Kiki Dunst.

Das Frauenhaus (1977)
Run, Virgin, Run (1970), or Die Jungfrauen von Bumshausen (The virgins from
Bumshausen) is a German sex farce.
The population of Bumshausen is growing by leaps and bounds, which is
surprising since all of the young wives are married to rich old husbands. The
explanation is a wind they call the fern. When it blows, the husbands walk
through the woods breathing it in, go back to their wives, and have sex which
inevitably leads to pregnancy. In fact, there is only one young virile man in
the entire town, the blacksmith, and he doesn't participate in the fern walk.
In fact, the fern started having its miraculous effect when he and his sister
moved to town. Hmmmm ...
The sweet equilibrium of the town is disturbed when the mayor's daughter
returns from the university, and creates a huge stir. First, she donates a
naked sculpture of herself as the town fertility goddess. Second, she sets her
sights on the blacksmith. The statue upsets her father, but her designs on the
blacksmith has all of the wives in an uproar. When a blonde interloper seduces
the fern -- ooops -- the blacksmith, everyone is plotting against everyone. To
complicate matters even more, the German "minister of population" and his
horny secretary arrive to check out the validity of the local fern phenomenon.
Then the mayor has the bright idea to increase tourism by advertising to
And so it goes ...
If you don't like or aren't curious about German sex farces, you might pass
on this and rent Lawrence of Arabia instead. On the other hand, if you are
interested in the genre, this film is exactly what a German sex farce is
supposed to be, a perfect C+ on our scale. I got more than one laugh while
watching lots of attractive naked women. The photography is soft, the editing
is competent, the music is oompah, the nudity is frequent, and the dubbing is
terrible. The terrible dubbing is fine in context, however, since it adds to
the overall hilarity. The light mood makes it seem as if the cast and crew
don't understand that sex and nudity are supposed to be dirty, and they just
have good clean fun doing it.
IMDb readers say 3.6 based on the votes of thirteen people who obviously
don't appreciate the finer points of German sex farces.

On ABC's "The View," Donald Trump was asked how he'd feel about his daughter
Ivanka, a former teen model, posing in Playboy. He replied, "I don't think
Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure. I've said if
Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her." Afterwards, his
spokesman said Trump was "absolutely joking," and "making fun of himself for his
tendency to date younger women. It's a sense of humor that people don't see all
* You know, like Woody Allen's sense of humor.
* It would be too awkward to date his daughter...He's already dating all
* She's the perfect woman for him: it would be like dating himself, only
with better hair.
* He'd never date his own daughter...She's much too old for him now.
