There has been some confusion between the titles of the American releases of two French films. A sleeve note to the Alpha Blue Archives triple feature DVD Too Young to Know says that it includes a film called Illusions Within Girls. Their brief description is of the film Je suis une belle salope which had the American release title Illusions, according to Le Dictonnaire. This accounts for the error that Brigitte Lahaie appeared in the film discussed here, called Illusions Within Girls in its American release. It is possible that Illusions was also called Illusions Within Girls or maybe Illusions Within Young Girls, exploiting the title of the famous American film Desires Within Young Girls. In any case Brigitte Lahaie does not appear in the film Le Pensionnat et ses intimités aka Illusions Within Girls.

This film is classified as 'érotique' in Le Dictionnaire. It could be speculated that explicit softcore may have been an accurate description, but only the American release, Illusions Within Girls, has been viewed. From this it is evident that some scenes were performed hard but perhaps edited soft for the French release, notably the swingers' party orgy where it is clear that Marie-France Morel and Patrice Cuny have real sex. Other scenes, including one with Marie-France Morel have hardcore b/g close-ups and still others have what would be classified as hardcore in some countries not too far from the present writer, such as dildo penetration by Nathalie Waknine. Michel Carin clearly has an erection in his threesome scene with Frédérique Barral and Nathalie Waknine and Frédérique is on the verge of performing fellatio on him. It is as if the American distributors acquired some unedited footage and made their own edit of the film, shorter but harder. However, from the lack of hardcore footage from various known hardcore performers - Karine Gambier, Siegried Cellier and even Frédérique Barral - it does not seem as if a hardcore version was originally intended.
