Classic Porn Review: Josephine Mutzenbacher


28th September 2014 20:43:53, Leoš Karabáč

The historical background of the novel is very interesting because the author of this piece is  Felix Salten. The man who wrote children’s classic novel Bambi. Maybe you have watched the Walt Disney movie of the same name about the adventures of a little deer. Josephine was widely published in Germany in the 1960s and was a huge hit. In the 1970s, it was made into a softcore movie with two sequels. We are reviewing the first hardcore version and this movie was a baseline for the whole German porn industry (and is also the first full-featured porn movie from Germany).

The original German edition is named as Josefine Mutzenbacher ... wie sie wirklich war Teil 1 (the way it began Part 1). The dubbed English version of the movie places the story in London and calls Josephine as Janine, a high-class prostitute who recounts how she got started and her journey. This is a coming-of-age story and being a porno, it has plenty of sex scenes. The director of this movie is the famous German porn director Hans Billian who made many soft Bavarian sex comedies, loops and even a great amount of hardcore pornography.

Josephine Mutzenbacher had 8 different hardcore sequels with different actresses and 4 spin-offs about her granddaughter Heidi. Josephine is without doubt the gem of German pornography and an unbeatable classic. It is number one in the hall of fame of European pornography.

Austrian beauty Patricia Rhomberg plays the role of Josephine. Interesting fact about Patricia is that she was the girlfriend of Hans Billian. She worked as a medical assistant (nurse without university degree). Her big dream was to be an actress and this was how she fulfilled her dream. She made a few loops and three other porn movies. A few days ago - 15th September - she enjoyed her 61st birthday party. Next year it will be 40 years since the movie was made.

In this movie there are five girls in the movie and 19 (yes 19!) sex scenes. Since this is the 1970s, the women are all-natural. This means no tattoos, breast implants and yes a full hairy bush on all the ladies. In fact, Patricia has even unshaven armpits!

The movie starts with Josephine riding a client and talking to the camera, telling us how she got started. After which the flashback begins and we are taken back to her formative years.

Josephine is a girl living with her mother, stepfather and stepbrother. She hears her step-dad and mom having sex and while watching them, her stepbrother also joins her. The step-siblings then have sex. This sex scene, like most other scenes in the movie is short. So although, there are many sex scenes, the scenes themselves are shorter than today’s porn movies.

One thing that viewers may not like is that in most of the scenes, Patricia and the other girls don’t even get naked. It seems that the director wanted to show the quick and illicit nature of the trysts in those scenes.

Josephine now becomes a peeping Tom. She watches her step-dad have a quickie with a neighbour, then sees her mom doing the same with a tenant and a guy fucking the same neighbour. The guy offers her money to stay quiet, but she instead accepts his cock.

It’s almost 20 minutes in the movie, when we see Patricia fully naked when she is admiring her body in the mirror.

The step-brother and mom are out of the picture now and this gives Josephine a chance to take the place of her mom, both in her step-dad’s bed and the tenants’ bed. At this part in the movie, there’s a lot more dialogue and you can see the effort put in by the director. The nonsex scenes are well shot and show an attention to detail in recreating the 1910s.

Josephine goes to the priest for a confession but ends up fucking him. Her friend watches them and then the two of them go on a horse carriage ride. Her friend fucks the carriage driver in a brief scene without getting undressed. She does not even take off her hat! But in the next scene Josephine and the friend get completely naked to fuck a guy in her home. Another guy joins them as well, this is a nice foursome scene.

Josephine then finally has sex with her step-dad. The sex scenes get longer and better at this point, with full nudity in the scenes. They have three back-to-back scenes and at the end of the third scene, one of their tenants catches them in the act. He threatens to expose this illicit relationship unless Josephine has sex with him. Josephine agrees to the deal and in fact enjoys the sex.

The tenant then brings one of his lady friends and convinces the father-step daughter duo to a foursome.

The tenant’s friend then starts turning tricks in the house, and Josephine and her stepdad realize what a profitable business they have on their hands. Josephine joins this working woman to walk the streets and is picked up by a photographer who wants her and another girl to shoot a porno. The box camera used in the scene is again a testament to the production values of the movie and the attention to detail paid in every scene.

The scene is also good. Both girls are naked. The photographer is not pleased with the other girl. It’s a funny scene where he keeps giving the girls instructions and finally just asks Josephine to do the scene with the guy.

The movie ends with Josephine walking the streets and being picked up by a rich gentleman who takes her to his mansion and fucks her while she is fully clothed. Then comes in another guy, whom she jerks off while talking to the camera telling us that this is how she became the most famous prostitute of her generation. She also tells us to watch out for more of her adventures in the sequel. Several sequels were made, but Patricia only acted in this one.
