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

Drama directed by Jan Halldoff who seemed more interesting in letting the young leading actress have a reason to take off her clothes than having a real script. The young actress is of course played by lovely exploitation starlet Christina Lindberg. If I was a director who had Christina in my grip I would probably have done the same thing.

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.

This is Joe Sarno's sequel to his Swedish erotica classic "Inga" but was slammed by many critics for being more depressing and having a darker subject matter than the sexier and more 'fun' swinging original, but it do have Marie Liljedahl in color while she was in black & white in the original so fans of her should take a watch on it.
The film has a few hardcore inserts added.

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.

The popular "Pippi Långstrump" series had 13 episodes on TV so in order to sell it internationally the series was re-edited and made into a feature film. The popular family series was based upon Astrid Lindgren's novels and the screenplay was also done by the author. Olle Hellbom directed.

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.

Mac Ahlberg's erotic fantasy starring Marie Forså.
Rate:
Watched Wanted Custom


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.

Comedy. It could be seen as a Swedish version of "Cannonball Run" but with boats. It was directed by Hans Iveberg. The sequel " Göta kanal 2 – kanalkampen" came 25 years later while the third one arrived in 2009 under the name of "Göta kanal 3 – Kanalkungens hemlighet"

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.

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
