London: Innocent & naive Vicky (Ingrid Steeger) falls in love with
musicion Stewart West & soon the two make passionate love ... the
next day he's gone, to Berlin, & Vicky wants to follow, & persuades her
friend Vivian (Vivian Weiss) to join her ... but they run out of money having
made it no further than Amsterdam.
So they decide to by hashish & smuggle
it into Switzerland hidden in their panties. In Switzerland they not only sell
their stuff but also hook up with another band, & have an orgy in the open,
during which Vicky goes skinny dipping ... & is promptly abducted by the
Hell's Angles, who take her with them on their bikes (in the nude) ...
Vicky (dressed again) hitches a ride to Munich, where she soon has passionate
sex with a musician from the band Birth Control, while Petra (Petra Prinz), a
groupie-friend of hers, steals some money from a respectable but drunk
businessman who wanted to have sex with her (but fell asleep instead). The
money she gives to Vicky, so she can afford a ticket to berlin ...
Vicky meets some manager guy who claims to know Stewart - whom Vicky, despite
all the sex she had on the road, is still deeply in love with -, but instead of
taking her to Stewart, the guy gets her totally spaced out on drugs & makes
her the centerpiece of a Black Mass ...
Days later, Petra finds Vicky a total
wreck in her Berlin appartment, Vicky claims even Stewart has boke up with her
... & Petra decides the best thing to do would be to shoot up & have
lesbian sex ... but soon, Vicky finds herself on a bad trip, runs the streets
of Berlin in the nude, until she is run over by a car ...
tale of sex, drugs & rock'n'roll, 1970's style, with the rudimentary story
there is naturally being little more than a hanger for showing some nudity,
& naturally there's little in terms of character development or imaginative
filmmaking ... but despite (because ?) of all its shortcomings, Ich, ein
Groupie is a fun, mindless piece of nostalgic erotica.
By the way,
originally the film was planned as a co-production between Erwin C.Dietrich
& Roger Corman, to be directed by the overrated Jack Hill ... but when
Dietrich, after 5 days of shooting, inspected the progress of the movie &
saw it going nowhere (Hill has wasted all the time just to film some band
performing), he fired Hill & called the co-production deal off, taking over
sole producing as well as directorial reigns. If any of Hill's material made it
into the movie remains doubtful at best.
