AKA Secret Passions (1979) Hans Billian
Starring: Gretchen Myer, Alma Katz, Heidi Mahler, Lydia Loring, Claud Bach, Jean Luc Pitard, Felix Wurmann
Judge Von Klingenberg is cheating on his wife and mistreating his maid in the process, yet outwardly he remains a well respected member of community. When a young journalist learns the truth about the judge and falls in love with his daughter Maria as well, the two young lovers begin to gather evidence against her father.
A very well-produced German feature, Secret Passions (1979) follows the patriarch winner of a morality award as the hypocrisy of his award unravels around him with unending sex. Fantastic Victorian-era costuming and mansion setting add to the flavour. Quite frankly, there’s so much fucking and sucking going on here through interweaving story lines it’s hard to pinpoint any one standout, though the four-way between the neighbouring worker and the three daughters is a girl-on-girl-on-guy gruff sweaty number that pleases. Maids are fucked by masters, wives are fucked by doctors, the son is turned out as a prostitute as grandma watches, old fathers diddle their daughters’ snatches, and the daughter fucks the journalist trying to document it all.
