What happens when six carefree young girls arrive at Ibiza, having lost all their money on the boat? They have to get a part-time job! And guess what these carefree girls do to get that job as quickly as possible? Of course! They have sex with hairy early-eighties men! In full pornographic detail! Throw in a few travelogue images of Ibiza, and you have a movie!
To some degree, the movie has that typical air of exploitation films of the seventies and early eighties, that is also found in the Black Emmanuelle films by Joe d'Amato and Jess Franco: seemingly oblivious of how politically incorrect it all is. An attempted rape turns into a'love' scene, for example. Nevertheless, one cannot resist a feeling of nostalgia, if only for sex films that do not feature surgically enhanced Barbie dolls.
The version of 6 Schwedinnen I saw is the uncut 83 minute letter-boxed (approx. 1.66:1) XXX version issued by Ascot Elite entertainment on DVD, with German and French sound. Image quality is a bit erratic with scratches and a few missing frames, but that only enhances the feeling of nostalgia. Somehow, a digitally cleaned-up anamorphic version would have been weird.
As most actors are French, the German version is a dubbed one, obviously produced especially for the millions of Germans who saw these types of films at their local cinemas. Indeed, those were the days.
