Fraulein Kitty/Review

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database

< Fraulein Kitty

Opening Voiceover: 1943, The German advance has been checked. So-called strategic withdrawls are warning of threatening defeat. Within The Reich, enemies of The Fuehrer dare to suggest a negotiated peace while there is still a chance. The Gestapo tracks down conspirators plotting against the Nazi regime. Even the army can not be trusted anymore. Agents of military security have a hard time uncovering those among the officers who oppose the regime. A lully Major suggests a diabolic scheme for the tracking down of subverses

What we've got here is basically a poor man's version of Salon Kitty. Another concept of the Nazis using prostitution (Nazi ladies disguised as hookers, that is) to reveal who the betraying members of the Third Reich are. Only difference is that there is no Madam in charge. Here, it's a female Nazi officer, Elsa Ackermann (Malisa Longo, Who I actually know best as the foreign beauty who flirts with Bruce Lee in Way Of the Dragon, but back to the movie...)

In place of the brothel is a train which travels to the front lines of a raging WWII. Once inside the train, the officers and soldiers get their relief with sex and entertainment. But if there happens to be those who choose to openly say bad things about Der Fuehrer, they are immediately taken out and shot (And, as in the other Kitty movie, all conversations are taped and overheard) One of the officers who has been having a change of heart lately is Major Frantz (Olivier Mathot) Frantz seems to no longer keep his disillusioned views to himself. But when he finds out that one of the Nazi prostitutes, Liselotte (Patrizia Gori) is actually a spy for The Resistance, he agrees to flee from the Nazi powers and offers to make sure that Liselotte will safely follow with him.

Unfortunately, what lies ahead is a cheap and terribly un-exciting conclusion of Nazi forces fighting against The Resistance which, in turn, is followed by an equally anti-climactic final shot which well leave plenty of viewers saying, "Is that it?". But what sets this apart from other nazisploitation flicks that I've seen is the lack of shockworthy sequences that this infamous genre is known for. Just on those merits alone, this one should be seen just in case you were wondering what the "Less shocking" side of nazisploitation looked like. But that doesn't mean that you will still be watching a good movie.
