Unusual Swedish entry back in the art house/soft porn era
5 April 2017 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Shot in Paris but strictly a Swedish production, "The Flamboyant Sex" played in U.S art theaters with subtitles back in the day, just a bit before my time as a film buff.

It's clearly influenced by the Nouvelle Vague, but has the beautiful girls and some skin so necessary to art films, released in the U.S. in 1963 (though shot in 1960), smack dab in the Bergman and Bardot era.

Local star Bernard Fresson is the male lead, several Swedish femmes room together in the city of lights, hoping to make their way in the world. Tasteful nudity is integrated into the story line as Barbara is a model. We get to see quality views of Parisian scenery and street life, with the movie emerging as a slight, mild slice-of-life saga.

The moody jazz score, including a trip to a jazz club, adds immeasurably to the film's atmosphere, and it would certainly be better known had it been made by a name director or boasted breakthrough actresses in the cast. Alas, merely a curio, hence available in the Something Weird (it's offbeat, not weird) catalog.
