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

Laila (17)
Young Leena Skoog made two short films called "Laila (17) vaknar" and "Laila (17) badar" that were made into a feature and sold internationally. It is pretty much a striptease film.

Jonas Cornell jumped from the Swedish Film Institute's film school to make his feature film debut Hugs and Kisses. The film, about class and love, with two pairs of focus, was debated. Sven-Bertil Taube played husband to Agneta Ekman, in fact, married to Cornell. The film "for a new and constructive tone of the young Swedish film," wrote the Daily News.

Directed by Arne Mattson and written by crime novelists Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö that was inspired by a real event about a killer who pushed his victims off a train. Maj and Per got bad critic for their filmscript as journalists critized the fact that the killer really was a normal person and that noone could not explain his behavior with a psychological defect (so that one could smile and say that killers are all just crazy obvious persons) and some even called the film tasteless. Would be interesting to see what journalists of today would say of the film.

Swedish-Danish sex-comedy exploitation directed by Mac Ahlberg and Peer Gulbrandsen about man who changes name to Maquis de Sade and suddenly he gets all the kinky girls out for some "action". Probably deserves a re-release now in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" days as it seems this must have been many years ahead of it's time.

Music movie with dance band Sven-Ingvars directed by Ragnar Frisk. Ljubljana, Yugoslavia was stand-in for Desperado City, a western town in the 1800s. The movie had a huge budget but was a financial, audience and critical failure. Frisk would return to his lowbudget comedies afterwards.

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.

Well, this is a big and unexpected undertaking. My own list of Swedish favourites is a slapdash miniature, and based on specks of knowledge, in comparison
