"Deported Women of the S.S. Special Section" is about the daily ins and outs of life in a Nazi woman's prison. The women get to the camp and are given the usual medical tests to make sure they're healthy enough for torture. There is a long shaving sequence in which pubic hair goes under the razor. That was hilarious. It was all for health reasons of course. The commander of the camp becomes infatuated with one of the prisoners. He wants her to love him. He goes through various romantic wooing ideas, (humiliation, solitary confinement), until she decides to leave a present in her vagina for him in the climax.

This was an OK piece of Naziploitation. Nothing was too outrageous. There is not enough of anything to really recommend seeing it. There was a decent amount of nudity and the pubic hair shaving scene was appropriately sleazy. There was also a pretty nice lesbian scene as well. But overall you would expect a Nazi death camp flick to be a little more brutal. This was fairly, (for Naziploitation), tame.

Oh, one last thing. There is a scene where the prison commander and his loyal man servant have a brief guy on guy encounter. This was the last thing I was expecting to see in my Woman's prison flick. Needless to say, a big turn off.

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 deported lovers

Achtung babies.


Now that's better.
