Strange story about strange people
5 June 2002 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

This is a very strange movie which probably couldn´t be made today.Vilgot Sjöman tells the story of a lawyer who has a lot of empathy..especially for people with so called sexual perversions.He says that it´s nothing wrong with them..its wrong with the society.

We meet a voyurist,a man who seems to be into S&M (a former medical student who got a hardon during watching the autopsy of a young female) and other strange persons.

Some explicit scenes when a man is showing of his "thingie" to a young female and some sex scenes between Kjell Bergkvist (lawyer) and his girlfriend.

No wonder this movie was forbidden to persons below 15 years of age.

Not very interesting,just plain stupid movie.Hard to find and not worth the effort.
