The Girls of Kamare


The Girls of Kamare

"The Girls of Kamare" (1974) is a Situationist film by René Viénet. Unlike Viénet's previous work, "Can dialectics break bricks?" (1973), "The Girls of Kamare" includes original footage shot by Viénet.

The film is a montage of Japanese soft-porn / bondage drama set in a juvenile disciplinary school, and French 16mm hardcore pornographic film.

The plot follows a team of female heroes, forced into a disciplinary school, who revolt against the authorities and their screws. The original Japanese film ends in a successful riot which plays directly into Viénet's detournement. Unlike "Dialectics", "The Girls of Kamare" is less self-critical and relies more on traditional conceptions of heroism.
