sorry for the mistakes!
Convoy of Girls
Not much nazisploitation, a litte about war, lead us to boredom.
"Convoy Of Girls" is a french movie of 1978, who give a surprise: the
signing of Jess Franco who writes and directs, apparently, with Pierre
We say apparently, because aside from the name of the mythical director
and production by "Eurociné" a mileston of exploitation, there's
very little of our spanish hero. Indeed, nothing. Here there aren't his
innovative and strange shots, there isn't the darkeness of his movies
and you are interested there aren't beautiful girls. There is only a
good soundtrack and the presecence of Monica Swinn to testify in a
certain sense, the relationship with Franco.
"Convoy Of Girls" is a disappointment movie, but we must say that we
don't want to see at all cost the usual nazisploitaition movie and a
"war movie" could be interesting. but this one stand in the middle
disappointing everyone. The start seems good, two lovers are walking in
a very green garden. Then we find the man, Erich, in in the
middle of a battle of a Second World War in some Nazi campaign in North
Africa. Wounded, Erich returns home, where becomes a hero and is
awarded to any office in Berlin. As every nazis' movies want some men
and Erich spends the night in a brothel where between dinners and
champagne spills on to the girls, he met again, the girl with he ran
carefree in the meadows. Renata.
We never thought that we would have to regret the miss of the usual sex
and food scenes, but in this case we must admit that from this point
the things change and the plot goes down.
Renata instead is "imprisoned" in the brothel cause of her father who
was hiding Rachel a Jewish woman, the only one among others that is
whipped in the movie, so, she asks to his old love to be freed but also
that the father didn't make a bad end.
Erich tries, but it's too late . It 's too late even to save the girl
who is being transferred elsewhere by train, but during the journey,
the convoy, which for some reason gives the title to the film (perhaps
inspired by the Payet's movie?), Is attacked by the rebels. She
Erich, who for unknown reasons is always at the front again, but this
time is in a small village in the snow, pass the night in the local
tavern. Trivially, the place is another Nazi brothel where he finds his
lover who now works in there. The two plan to escape and save herself
from the absurd war.
We wonder about a bit 'of things, including why she continues to end up
in brothels, but also because why Erich makes a long monologue, of
which we share However the ideas, but it's really, really boring. Then
we let you search the reason why the two escaping perfectly visible in
Apart from the location of the snow-covered village, there isn't much
to appreciate in "Convoy Of Girls" considering that the "girls" go
entirely unnoticed . It's a movie that would have many ideas that are
ignored and undeveloped.
Pierre Chevalier in his career has directed several "exploitation"
including "La Vie amoreuse de l'homme invisible" which pays homage to
the character of Dr.Orloff.
