Disappointing slice of Swedish erotica, 10 June 2008
Author: TheMarquisDeSuave from Worcester, MA

Alright, maybe I shouldn't have expected much from a film called "Anita: Swedish Nymphet". Still, I was very disappointed by this Swedish softcore romp. The only reason why I watched it was because of Christina Lindberg. I'm a big fan of "Thriller: A Cruel Picture" (which remains the single greatest Swedish exploitation film of all time) and Mrs. Lindberg was truly revelatory in that. Shes hotter than all hell, combining a childlike face with a truly voluptuous body. In addition to being a major babe, shes a pretty decent actress as well. She can create sympathy and lend depth to her often depraved characters.

With a title like "Anita: Swedish Nymphet", I was hoping Lindberg would appear naked a lot. Unfortunately, the film seems to want to create a serious study of "nymphomania", a symptom which has largely been proved to be nonexistent. So a lot of screen time is devoted to pseudo-academic talk and character exposition. If I would any of the characters remotely interesting, this could be bearable. However, the film becomes largely dull - it should have injected some life into the proceedings, gone over the top, and become a campy softcore romp. As it is, it isn't even good for unintended laughs.

Still, the film is worth watching for Lindberg. When she does get naked, you can't take your eyes off the screen. Also, she does a good job with an uninteresting character. The film is worth watching if you were a fan of her work in "Thriller: A Cruel Picture", but don't be expecting too much. (4/10)
