it all takes so long to get going
6 July 2009 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

An American makes a soft core sex movie in Scandinavia with Swedes and Brits. Presumably to increase the appeal he adds 3-D sequences, which now come across as most bizarre moments of surrealism as distorted nudes writhe and reach out, and in the version I have we have the then magical word, 'Swedish' added to the nudge nudge, wink wink English phrase suggesting naughty goings on. All this and lots of nakedness, plus a wheelchair bound Diana Dors (she had had an accident just before making the film) and the lovely Sue Longhurst and yet this is a most frustrating movie. Using the Victorian, 'Man and a Maid' story this gradually becomes a tale of the spurned young man imprisoning his young lady in order to further his advances. There are great moments and as mentioned lots of flesh but it all takes so long to get going and the farcical moments most annoying. I think in fairness as someone else has suggested, it's probably best to fast forward to when the lovely Sue gets naked.
