Wow check out this European film called "Katarin" from 1977, about an innocent village girl going out and discovering the modern world. Some guy picks her up on the road. Is it really that easy? If we went to an exotic Mediterranean country like this, would the innocent village girls look this sweet, wholesome, friendy and eager to explore new things like this girl? lol. See below.
Btw, what country is this? It doesn't even say. Can you tell? Is it Spain or Italy or Portugal or Greece?
Btw, check out this very dreamy and romantic clip below from some European film below. It looks to be from the 70s and looks very passionate and soulful. Does this clip represent how your love life in Italy was? lol. Does it make you feel nostalgic for the romantic eras? lol. It seems there were a lot of weird films like this from the 70s. How come people back then looked so natural and real and human, not soulless or cold or repressed like today?
The movie is from Malta. I never watched it but remember reading that, when it came out, it was more of a scandal in Malta, still one of the strictest Catholic societies in the world (think Sicily and multiply by 10!), then in other Euro countries.
Then again, ther 70s and 80s are replete with sexually titillating "coming of age" movies, some more explicit than others.
It doesn't mean Europe was a magical place where you could easily find a 15-yo Lolita at every street corner, ready to jump into your car. It doesn't mean it is like this now.
