Seduction Cinema) DVD. Drama. 1967. Black and White.
84 minutes. NR, nudity. After
her mother dies, 16 year old Inga (Marie Liljedahl) moves in with her 32
year old aunt Greta. Not a big deal, but the sweet Inga immediately draws
the attention of Karl, Greta’s 24 year old mopey boyfriend who’s
spending all of her money, and a older wealthy dirtbag greasy looking
bastard named Einar (pictured). Needing money to support Karl’s
lifestyle, Greta basically rents out Inga to Einar, who digs younger
women, as a companion. However, Inga has her eye on Karl, who just bought
a boat using Greta’s money.
In 1967, this movie was reported as being very controversial and
very erotic, and I’m sure it was. However, we are a long way from 1967
and this movie can no longer be considered controversial or erotic. In
fact, I found this flic to be more of a comedy than anything else. I was
laughing at the Austin Powers “lets swing baby” atmosphere and the
unintentional funny dialog. One of the funniest lines in the movie is
spoken by an older woman to Greta; “You’re only just 30, and you
don’t even look fat.” Poor Greta is also refereed to as an “old
hag” by some young busty bimbo blonde.
Knowing that I have even less rhythm than Steve Martin in The Jerk,
I realize that I have no right making fun of the way anyone dances, but
god damn people in the 1960s danced funny. There is some nudity and a few
minor sexual situations, but nothing that will make you raise an eyebrow.
One the plus side, Marie Liljedahl is a doll (that’s not Marie on the
DVD cover, that’s Misty
Mundae. Marie is below.) and she does show some skin. The DVD
includes; uncut English dubbed version; Swedish language version with
English subtitles, two trailers, outtakes,
commentary by Director Joseph Sarno and others, and an audio interview
with Marie Liljedahl. Fans of 60’s art house erotica will enjoy Inga as
it hits all the sparks of that decades culture.- Denis Sheehan
