CGiii Comment

From the director of the notoriously anti-semitic film: Jud Süß (1940).

An early synthesizer-owning, art-dealing pederast...who likes to watch young men wrestle...

And...Manfred who is a little prick adores his artistic schoolboy chum, Klaus...a boy who is going through a rather poofy phase...!

There's a pretty maid...wanting it badly.

A mother who wants her son to want the maid...badly...she ends up in court on a charge of procurement!

Bizarre to say the least...!

It truly is a terrible film, but...important in the way homosexuality was perceived and presented in the Germanic cinema of the late 50s.
