Known to her clients as Dagmar, she's a classy Swedish call girl in Copenhagen. After two years, she's ready quit, and we follow her on what she hopes is her last day in the trade. She wakes at 9 AM, gets her first call and a marriage proposal, checks in with her doctor, pays final visits to various clients, arranges to lease her flat, passes on her black book to a colleague, tries to beg off on an impromptu session with Japanese businessmen, has a quick conversation with her brother, and makes a couple of charitable contributions. All the while, her eyes on the clock, there's the threat of her pimp finding out about her plans. If she pulls it off, what awaits? Written by
As Swedish (or Danish?) erotica goes, this is not one of the more memorable films. It is basically a day-in-the-life look at a young Swedish girl (Diane Kjaer) who is working in Copenhagen as a prostitute in order to put her oblivious boyfriend through medical school. The funniest and sexiest scene is one where she calls her other prostitute "friends" to fill in for her with a client, but each of them is otherwise engaged in various kinky pursuits. Her relationship with her own clients, however, like an elderly American and a couple of Japanese stereotypes, or her dealings with her doctor and her pimp are far less interesting. There's also a sub-plot involving her younger brother who has gotten his girlfriend (Inger Sundh) pregnant, but it really goes nowhere. There's PLENTY of nudity, of course, but that can only take a movie like this so far.
Some of the best Swedish erotica was actually directed by an American Joe Sarno ("Inga", "Young Playthings") or the soon-to-be-world-renowned Swedish cinematographer Mac Ahlberg ("I, a Woman"), and it tended to feature actresses like Marie Lilljedahl ("Inga", "Eugenie, Story of her Journey"")or Christina Lindberg ("Young Playthings", "Thriller--a Cruel Picture"). None of these people was involved here, although the sexy Inger Sundh had starred as the malicious "Greta" in the Joe Sarno/Marie Lilljedahl sequel "Inga and Greta". Helli Louise from Sarno's "Daddy, Darling" is also in the supporting cast here somewhere, but if (as another reviewer says), she is the girl on the bicycle, then this is really a waste of her, um, talents, which were almost exclusively from the neck down.
If you really like early 70's Swedish erotica, you'll probably like this, but there are certainly more entertaining examples to be found out there.
