Commentary:

New film produced by the German company Lisa Films, with Ibizan scenarios and with much of the same technical team from the film ‘Summer Night Fever’. The director Sigi Rothemund told to the newspaper Diario de Ibiza that ‘Die schönen Wilden von Ibiza’ has the feeling of an American film. It tries to present the island’s beauty and the summer atmosphere, atractive for Germany where they lack sun and heat.

As in ‘Summer Night Fever’, the script was written by the German producer Erich Tomek (signing with the pseudonym Florian Burg), who will also later be responsible for performing the scripts for the following Lisa Films projects on the island ‘ Sunshine Reggae auf Ibiza ‘(1983) and’ Mama mia – Nur keine panik ‘(1984).

‘Die schönen Wilden von Ibiza’ was filmed in July and August 1980. In the film appear numerous locations of the island, like the airport, Ses Salines, Club Deportivo Botafoc Marina, Club San Rafael, the Marina district, Platja d’en Bossa, Figueretes, Plaza de Toros (where a performance was filmed with Manuel Benitez “El Cordobés”) and the Paseo Vara de Rey, among other places.

The film was widely distributed in the international markets and in Spain it was distributed under the title ‘Hembras salvajes en Ibiza’, being labeled with the symbol “S” for its high erotic content.
