Thanks.
I ordered two different DVDs of this movie. Luckily they were cheap, since they were total crap quality. I think they were VHS transfers - and not terribly good even by those standards. One was truly atrocious, heavily pixelated. If it was more than a few bucks I would've gone to the trouble of returning the damn thing just to express my displeasure.

There doesn't seem to be an official studio release. Too bad. But I'm always on the lookout for anything starring the wonderfully precocious Lara! Hopefully there will at least be a decent DVD at some point, or perhaps an iTunes or streaming run.

Lara Wendel was born in 1965 and this film was finished in 1977 and only released in 1979. Apparently she acted in this film the same year she did Maladolescenza.

If IMDb is correct, the movie filmed in November of 1976 - only two months after they wrapped on Maladolescenza and four months before her 12th birthday on March 29, 1977. What kind of vitamins did her parents give young Lara? Were they the same ones Eva took? :D

An Upload from a youtube user in 2020:

https://piped.video/watch?v=ULXxapK87L0 (piped.video) since it’s age restricted video)

I admit this film isn’t interesting to me in this low quality. It would have to be a really outstanding film for me to watch such low quality version

Problem is you have to wait till nearly the end for the good scene, although the shower scene is ok. But I think I preferred her in maladolescenza.

That’s really crazy, she looked like 15-18 here.

Am I The only one who always thought Lara Wendel has a tomboy face or almost looks trans (just the face) ?

On a different note, Katja Bienert also aged quickly/a lot from 16-20 I think. Maybe it was just the pollution and environment back then? Everyone still smoked (indoors/on Television) and so much More pollution..or maybe it’s just the hair styles and makeup..or genetics lol

To me, Lara looks older than she does in Maladolescenza.
