When Sweden:Heaven or Hell came out in America, I was only 16 years old. America had started the "ratings" game. Sweden was X rated. My mother and sister went out for the evening, so my brother in law suggested that us "men" should go out on the town. We ended up sneaking me into this movie. To say the least, I was quite surprised at what I saw. I think my brother in law was feeling about the same and he was a Marine! I did enjoy it myself. I actually would like to see it again. From what I read in the IMDb, I guess it will never be offered again. Too bad. It has been many, many years. It made me want to go to Sweden. If anybody knows how to get a copy, please respond to this commentary.
