Four young teenage girls are betrayed by a supposed “friend” and sold to a perverted nightclub owner who ties them up, whips them and then forces them into prostitution.
The movie follows four schoolgirls with a natural curiosity for sex. A friend of theirs sells them to a woman named Dani who runs a sleazy nightclub and Dani’s friend, Mike, makes sure that they do as they’re told. The girls are basically forced into a life of prostitution (though they really don’t seem to mind this very much at all) where they do all the work and Dani collects all of the cash.
Soon, Mike decides to milk this setup for all it’s worth and he and his busy camera get to work taking shots of the girls in various states of undress with their respective clients. Mike’s plan is to use this as evidence in a blackmail scam, while Dani hopes that this new injection of cash into her operation will save her failing club from a slow death. What Mike doesn’t bank on is falling in love with one of the four girls, Elena. Once he realizes his feelings for her are real, his plan becomes a little more complicated but neither Mike nor Dani realize just how grown up these little girls really are or how they’re going to react to this whole blackmail thing…
From the opening scene in which Dani tells Mike she wants to ‘live like pigs’ to the fantastic (if somewhat predictable) ‘twist’ ending, Little Girls is a trash movie fan’s delight. The English narration (which we can probably quite safely assume differs from the original French version somewhat) adds a nice, sinister vibe to the movie while the wanton and gratuitous sex scenes keep things nice and sleazy. The film is quite well shot and set to a fantastic score and the entire picture has a strange and depraved tone to it.
That said, there’s also a weird moralistic theme not too far under the surface. These girls learn the hard way that their actions have very serious consequences and the film definitely makes sure that we know this just as well as the characters do.
Little Girls is delightfully decadent slice of sixties Eurotrash that features a bevy of beauties and some fantastic camerawork. As twisted as it might be, it’s also a whole lot of fun. Exploitation enthusiasts ought not to miss this one.
