Too Young for Love?

Original title: (Für die Liebe noch zu mager?)
GDR, 1973, 86 min, color
In German; English subtitles

At the textile company, everyone appreciates the work of 18-year-old Susanne (Simone von Zglinicki), but nobody really considers her a woman—including Lutz, with whom she is in love. She sets about to make a change, but it is only when she realizes that she is being taken advantage of that a more self-confident Susanne emerges.  


This humerous and poetic film features popular 1970s rock music by Hungarian musicians Zsuzsa Koncz and the Illés Ensemble and by the East German Klaus Renft Combo, which was banned in 1975.
