Storyline

Anita is a girl of only 16 years, and while she has developed early physically, to a mature woman, she is psychologically completly ruthless. Her relationship the her parents and her friends is very poor and she is regarded with contempt by the people around her, even by the men who so ruthlessly use her. During her troubles she meets Erik, a young psychology student. Gently and carefully he begins to dispell her psychological blocks. In the course of this treatment she reveals to him some of the shocking espisodes of her previous experience and how an inner compulsion forces her into humiliating debauchery in dangerous environments. Erik believes he has the solution to Anita's problems: to let her move into an artist's communal experiment, of which he is already a member. The common interest of this collective is largely the performing of classical music. Anita's prosence in the collective, however, is regarded by some of the other girls as highly provocative. Anita's nymhomania is ... Written by Stefan Nylen <red@defekt.cinemacabre.se>

One must understand the times to understand this film
5 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The English title of this film is Anita (Swedish Nymphet). At the time of release of this film, in the United States, this was regarded as a duplicate title; by our standards at that time all Swedish girls were considered nymphomaniacs! That was NOT right for us to do so; I am the first to admit that. Rather it reflects the morality, or perceived morality, of that era. In some locations of the US a nymphomaniac was a woman who had sex twice a night with her husband; except perhaps for her honeymoon when such "immoral" behavior was tolerated. The Swedish women were much more advanced in human sexuality; it was the United States that had to catch up in this field. This movie is interesting in that it does portray a true Swedish nymphomaniac in a realistic fashion.

The movie explains in some detail that nymphomania is actually a comparatively rare condition; the psychology student mentions that nymphomania is improperly used to describe the activities of a woman who is simply enjoying a healthy sex life (when I was growing up the healthy sex life of a woman was considered to be having sex only when her husband was extremely desperate). Rather, nymphomania is a reflection of a very deep seated mental disorder. The question is whether or not Anita can be cured. Not deprived of all sexual desire but having the sexual desire that is properly balanced with L-O-V-E! The uncut movie was banned in the United Sates for some time. Though you could show breasts and butts by 1974 one found it quite difficult to legally show a woman's pubic area-this being about the same time that Larry Flynt was going to prison for doing just that. The uncut version of this film shows a little more of that area than what was allowed in the U.S. then. Christina Lindberg did a remarkable acting job in the private nude and sexual scenes. Today this film would be regarded as more or less normal fare; back then it was considered pornographic to a tremendous degree. Hence my high regards for her.
