Danish erotica
24 July 2001 | by kaurismaki1See all my reviews

An underrated early Danish erotic film. Beside a small masturbation scene and a little nakedness, there isen´t much sex in the film but it works on other levels. It´s beautiful shot in black and white, has a "new wave" kind of editing style, good acting and a lot of humor. Radly Metzger imported this film to USA and earned a LOT og money on it. It started his attention on what could be done economically and artistically with the erotic genre.
