Ernst Hofbauer – Schulmädchen-Report 4. Teil – Was Eltern oft verzweifeln lässt AKA Schoolgirl Report Part 4: What Drives Parents to Despair (1972)
This movie is a fake documentary on the sexual habits of teenagers/college age youth. The deep, newscaster-like voice of the narrator leads us through a series of vignettes, with different actors. The first deals with a girl who wants to trade sex for grades, which seems sort of cliche. In another episode, a black girl and her white boyfriend deal with their classmates’ racism. There are a few other mini-plots, all with the requisite nudity and implied sex. The episodes focus on one or two characters who undergo a sort of 1 dimensional coming-of-age process. The fantastic, kitschy soundtrack is by Gert Wilden and his orchestra. A lot of his “Schulmadchen” hits seem to come from this movie. Also known as ‘Campus Swingers’. The title translates as ‘what drives parents to despair’. I never knew Germans could be so hip!
