An interesting drama that still works.
15 May 2001 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is the story of Anders and Pia Hiorth who are in a marriage in decline. So badly that she is trying to commit suicide. This comes as a shock to Anders who didn't see this desperate attempt coming. He is working at the local high school, spending a lot of time with his best friend and boss Ulf , the headmaster. A man strong in will and a leader in the community. Anders in stricken with feelings of guilt as he has taken an interest in a student who dropped out of school. But not sexually or at least he doesn't think so. But who is doing whom?

As a kid this is what I always imagined was going on inside the teacher's lounge. Drinking and people sleeping with each other. I even drew pictures of this at the roliga timman "The funny hour" to my teachers contempt. In any case, I think this film survives the passage of time well. It's fun to see the clothes and wallpapers and such from -75. Some of the acting is a bit theatrical especially that of Pia's character by actress Agneta Ekmanner. The film has a few explicit sexual scenes that were very daring at it's time. A funny note is the scene in which a couple have sex in the forest and there's a stand in when the guy takes off his pants with a HUGE hard on. The stand in was a well known porn actor of that time. A lot of the female cast is naked as well. The director Vilgot Sjöman (Seaman) was supposed to be at the private screening I attended but unfortunately he didn't show up. Vilgot created quite an international stir with his film "I Am Curious (yellow)" in 1967. So is been somewhat of a scandal maker. The film stands up to international comparing of that time. The actors and actresses aren't as beautiful as in a French film. The naturalistic point of view is very poignant except for the big horse cock, that is. Reminded me of Pasolini's 120 days of sodom, in size that is... Sorry about all the cheap talk. The film is quite good in any case.
