First in two epic dramafilms directed by Jan Troell. It starred Ingmar Bergman favorites Liv Ullmann and Max von Sydow and was photographed by Sven Nykvist (also a Bergman collaberator). It was based upon the first novel in the Emigrants Suite written by Vilhelm Moberg. Academy Award Nominee for Best Picture (one of few non-English Language Films to Acheive that "honor").

Family movie co-produced with West-Germany and some of its actors were dubbed to Swedish. It was based upon Astrid Lindgren's children books and was a success that spawned two sequels. The three films was later re-edited for television where it was made into a 13-episode show.

Comedy that rips off "Groundhog Day" with the main character living the same day over and over again but with a small change - this character wakes up nude in the elevator exposing male full frontal nudity humor for the whole family. It was directed by Torkel Knutsson and Mårten Knutsson, who haven't done much since.

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

This romantic drama was seen as one of Sweden's greatest film of that decade. It was directed by Roy Andersson and was a surprisingly mature effort at describing teenage love to those who have never experienced it.

With periodic flashbacks and fantasy sequences, Exposed, in terms of its narrative structure at least, is a bit more complicated than your average sexploitation picture. But of course the real reason why this movie exists is to see Christina Lindberg naked and still look innocent even if she was a good actress - honest. This exploitation drama was directed by Gustav Wicklund.

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.

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.

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.
