Despite Diana's insecure nature, she and her husband Julian agree with the idea to sexually experiment with another couple. They put out an ad on the net to which the well experienced Alex and Timo react. We follow Diana and Julian as they prepare for the arrival of Alex and Timo, who they have invited to their home for the weekend. Diana is nervous. As soon as she is confronted with the self-confident and ravishingly sexy Alex, her insecurity increases even more. Timo seems disinterested, a sharp contrast to the boyish excitement of Julian. But as night falls and their sexual exploration begins, we notice Timo may not be as casual as he initially seemed and Diana on the other hand contains hidden strength. And so we realize there's more to 'Swingers' than just sex. Swingers: could your relationship stand the test? Written by

Planned to be released in modest numbers, the biggest theater chain did not want to program the movie. The film therefore didn't do well at the Dutch box office. On DVD things worked out a bit better: it had a place at the top-50 of best-rented films. After being sold to Germany however, the film was received extremely well with an audience of nearly 3 million at its premiere on ZDF television. Subsequently, the film had several reruns on both ZDF and ARD television. See more »

What appears to to look like a cheap soft-sex-film, turns into a real discovery under the cunning hands of newcomer Stephan Brenninkmeijer. Not only does he avoid all the clichés that usually comes with a theme like this, he also succeeds in giving you the feeling that most other films about this topic lack... erotic tingles.
Instead of plunging into a lot of fumbling in the dark, Brenninkmeijer builds an atmosphere, he gives us a chance to care for the characters and he doesn't shy away from cutting these tensions short, just to build them up again. As happens so frequently in real life.
"Swingers" didn't do to well in the Dutch cinema's but turned out to be a front runner in the video and DVD stores.
Hopefully sales in Germany also boosts for this little gem, so Epix can treat us more often with such a pearl.
