The start of the new Swedish wave of cinema where most of their films had a big focus on liberal sex. This notorious movie included a short shocking scene where Lena Nyman touched a man's penis. Seized by customs upon entry to the United States, subject of a heated court battle, and banned in numerous cities, Vilgot Sjöman's I Am Curious Yellow" is one of the most controversial films of all time. This landmark document of Swedish society during the sexual revolution has been declared both obscene and revolutionary but one should not also forget that it was also hugely political and have a strong message. Viljot Sjöman directed both this and it's sequel

The same movie with the same characters, cast and crew as I am Curious (Yellow), but with some different scenes and a different political slant. The political focus in Blue is personal relationships, religion, prisons and sex. Blue omits much of the class consciousness and non-violence interviews of the first version. Yellow and Blue are the colors of the Swedish flag. Director: Viljot Sjöman

Sequel made at the same time as the other Pippi movie. It was also the final movie released in the series probably as the leading actress got to old for the role. The strangest thing with this movie is that the character suddenly has developed magic powers without any former reason for it or explanation and it was also not something that was written in the original books from Astrid Lindgren.

Marriage drama directed by Ingmar Bergman. As well as a movie it was also a TV series that was in 6 parts á 45 minutes. "Saraband" that was made for television 30 years later was seen as a kind-of sequel to this one.

The 1970s was all about sexual exploration and a huge number of sexplotation-films was made in Sweden and made huge stars of its female leads in the underground cult circles. Christina Lindberg will forever be the most famous of them and it is deserved. She has a walking sex bomb but still with an innocent aura and in this film she is the only reason for this movie being a success. Stellan Skarsgård in a supporting role (one of his firsts) is totally overshadowed and brings nothing to the table to this movie even if all know he probably had it in himself already then. This is all Christinas movie and if you are not interested in her nude body this is not for you.

Third and final movie in the Emil-trilogy based upon Astrid Lindgren's novels. Olle Hellbom directed them all.

Bo Arne Vibenius' explotation classic that inspired Quentin Tarantino into creating a homage character in "Kill:Bill" of Christina Lindberg's iconic character from this movie. The only revelation and fantastic thing about "Thriller: A Cruel Picture" as the rest of the movie is terribly directed and lousy edited and with sloppy unsimulated sexscenes added into the movie (if you see the longest version) that Lindberg never participated in as they were done by a body double. Still even if it is lousy as hell the movie is fantastic just because Lindberg manage to be the nearest we have come a holy dark angel in real life.

Joseph W. Sarno directed several soft-sex movies with swedish starlet Marie Forså where she played a nymphomanic girl who seduced both girls and boys. This was one of them.
Even though it is available on DVD the elements are deemed to bad for the Swedish Film Institute who consider this film as lost.

Another film that Swedish sexbomb Marie Forså had a major role in. This was a version of Maquis de Sades Justine. As with all sexplotation-films it all is centered around the nude appearances of the girl and if you like her 'chemistry'. Juliette was played by a danish girl and it was all dubbed/acted out in english. Like a swedish Jess Franco movie if you know what I'm talking about - excellent Eurotrash. Mac Ahlberg directed the film.

Gangster-drama directed by Roy Andersson. The film was razed to the ground by most Swedish critics when released in 1975, and Roy Andersson would not be doing another full-length movie for twenty-five years. Over time though, it has become a cult film and easier to appreciate.

Ingmar Bergman directs Ingrid Bergman in one of his more famous dramas. It was Academy Award nominated for Best script and actress. It won a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film. The film was produced in Norway as Ingrid Bergman refused to film in Sweden after being suspected for tax fraud. This would also be Ingrid Bergman's final movie.

Drama based upon Knut Hamsun's novel directed by Bo Widerberg. The film exists in several versions (none released on DVD) but because of a conflict between Bo and the producer it was never released in a version that Bo approved of. To top it off it was released theatrically in Sweden in 1987, 8 years(!!!) after its world premiere at the Cannes film festival in 1979.

Epic family drama with autobiographical touches from Ingmar Bergman, his last real motion picture since he in his later years only would do films for TV, write scripts and direct plays for theater. His swan song to cinema won Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction/Set Decoration.

Later this film would be reworked for TV as a miniseries that would deepen the characters and make the movie even more fantastic as a body of work.

The 1960s and 70s was mostly destinctive in Sweden for three genres: the social critical dramas, the family movies and the exploitation genre that sold well internationally where focus was nude gorgeous Swedish girls (generally known as Swedish Sin films - den Svenska Synden). After a decade the genre lost it's impact as harder pornographic films took over and the film industry started with making more mainstream national bankable movies and a lot of comedies. After Ingmar Bergman's farewell Swedish films started to decline for a while and it seemed to be better productions on TV than films during the 1980s, but during the beginning of the 1990s Sweden would find it feets again. First but making several excellent thrillers that would be the start on several franchises and film series where the leading hero/heroine investigated brutal murders.

Really nice list, but I think fundamentals are missing like: en kärlekshistoria, and more Bergmann like Det sjunde inseglet.
