After a lengthy, uptight discussion about the joys of sex with two aged "experts", Hans Giese and Wolfgang Hochheimer, German writer and popular sex educator Oswalt Kolle introduces us two stories that are supposed to shed some light onto the topic of marital sex:

  • Petra (Biggi Freyer) has never had fulfilling sex during all of her (still young) marriage, and even the first premarital sex with her now husband Thomas (Wilfrid Goessler) felt like little more than a rape - and yet Petra loves her husband with all her heart. Thomas is disappointed, frustrated, angry even when she first tells him, but eventually he starts to understand ... and once he has grasped the situation, they start having "good" sex.
  • Claudia (Katarina Haertel) is a housewife and mother, and she has been married to Martin (Régis Vallée) for quite some years now, yet of late, he doesn't seem to take much notice of her anymore, let alone have sex with her. She though gets hornier by the hour - and eventually, she almost cheats on him. Ultimately though, the two talk it over, and once he understands, he takes her to the hotel where he deflowered her, and they have sex in the very same room.

There is a theory that links these two stories, and Oswalt Kolle won't spare us this: While men feel at the height of their sexuality shortly after puberty and their lust starts to steadily decreasing from their mid-20's onwards, women only start to build up their sexual desires after puberty and reach their sexual heights much later in life, usually their 30's or so. But apparently, there's no problem a good talk won't solve ...

 

Risquée at its time, this film is today nothing short of hilarious: Basically, The Miracle of Love is nothing short of straight sexploitation but given a scientific background to be "acceptable" to a mainstream audiences - even if the science behind this film is nothing but a handful of commonplaces.

However, the pseudo-scientific background is what makes this movie all the funnier: Oswalt Kolle's monotonous narration, his slightly embarrassed attitude during the discussion at the beginning, the specialists' discussion itself that's supposed to come off as spontaneous, and so on and so forth.

This, coupled with the two simplistic stories and a few ridiculous short scenes Kolle uses as examples to make his point make this film ... on one hand embarrassingly old-fashioned even for its time, on the other the perfect party movie!!!
