Ah, the freewheeling, swinging 60s! The story of Fanny Hill as she learns about the hard realities of the world, and her loves and losses. The first half is a little more wild, choppy, awkward, and exotic, much like a Warhol movie, but it gets better as it goes along. Her first love may be doomed, since her boyfriend's father doesn't like her. But there are sooooo many men out there.... A little softcore, and true to its name, breasts and butts are shown. This was not the first film for most of the actors, but it WAS only the 2nd for Diana Kjaer, which explains her so-so delivery. The 60's music playing during her flashbacks are just silly, but there's some nice outdoor scenes from Sweden and Venice.
