To conduct a series of interviews with French young people about love &
sexual freedom & to later make them up into a spicey erotic article, Doctor
Christina comes to Paris, but also when she goes to meet the first couple of
students she has an appointment with, she catches them making hot love, but
instead of immediately leaving or brutally interrupting them, she decides to
stick around & watch them, getting quite a little horny herself.
much turned on by that glimpse of sexual freedom she decides to do without the
interviews & rather writes about what she sees (or even dreams about).
she though has a dream about 2 lesbians making out, she is somewhat disturbed,
as she thought of herself being straight, that however doesn't keep her from
going to a nightclub the next night & watch a lesbian sex-performance -
that seriously turns her on.
Among the sex-film directors of the
late 60's & early 70's - before hardcore pornography hit the industry big
time -, Nick Philips stood out as making films with very personal visions &
a rich visual style - but at the same time being every bit as naughty as his
competitors dared to be.
Usually his films are not so much stroy driven but
sexual vignettes held together by an off-screen commentary that someties seems
to border beat poetry & improvised Jazz music, while at the same time being
devoid of any on-screen-noises let alone dialogue.
Dr.Christina of Sweden
is (of course) no exception to that rule, it does however suffer a little from
going into 2 very different directions (storywise): For one it's an innocent
Paris-travelogue that does in fact show many of the prominent tourist sights,
on the other hand it is about a woman slowly realizing her own lesbianism. That
the off-screen commentary & the on-screen-images do not always match either
(sometimes they contradict each other) doesn't help all that much either.
remains however at the end of the day is a fun piece of nostalgic 70's erotica,
that, while being far from Philips' best, might still bring a smile to your
