Lena is alone in the city when her parents are on vacation. She's torn between her innocent boyfriend and the older, more experienced, and sadistic sociopath Helge. She tells Jan about Helge, who gets angry and slaps her, she thereafter runs away and hitchhikes with the promiscuous and friendly couple Lars and Ulla, with whom she goes to Jan's mother's summer cabin. The day after, her boyfriend finds her there and takes her back to the city. Where she yet again is drawn to Helge. Lena's memories, the present and fantasies are frequently mixed. Written by
This movie is an uneasy mix of carefree hedonistic sixties sexy fun and a darker, more edgy sexuality and is all the better for that. In a way the gorgeous Christina Lindberg also epitomises this duality, is she a wide eyed innocent schoolgirl or someone craving some action? Well, I suppose the fact she spends most of the film with hardly any clothes partly answers that question but here even she seems unable to decide. Indeed for much of the movie we slip fantasy and reality and between her safe home loving, sweater wearing boyfriend to the more exciting older guy who plays with drugs and SM. Always good to watch with some interesting twists and turns and a glorious semi consensual bondage scene to round things off.
