Christina Lindberg & Fucking Åmål


(Silvanito) #1

This got mixed up in the Django Kill-thread by me, but should have got a thread of its own right from the start.

Sorry about that…

It’s Swedish Christina Lindberg. She did a lot of nude modelling in the 70s and was also in some films, mostly soft erotic.

And then she also did this film Thriller, a violent revenge-story that is actually a bit shocking even today!

She is alive and well and working as a journalist these days, and she still looks fine being close to 60 years old!

Sounds like you need this film (imdb review below)…
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
In 1975, in Stockholm, the housewife Elisabeth (Lisa Lindgren) gets tired of her abusive and drunken husband Rolf (Michael Nyqvist), and she moves with her teenager daughter Eva (Emma Samuelsson) and her young son Stefan (Sam Kessel) to the hippie community where her brother Goran (Gustav Hammarsten) lives. Goran is a good man, who has an open relationship with his mate Lena (Anja Lundqvist), but does not feel comfortable with the situation. They are welcomed by the group composed of a new-lesbian Anna (Jessica Liedberg), her “almost gay” husband and their children; a gay; and an idealist communist. Eva becomes friend of her neighbor Fredrik, and with the new-arrivals in the commune, lives of the members change. Meanwhile, Rolf misses Elizabeth and his family, stops drinking and tries to approach to Elizabeth again.

“Tillsammans” is a delightful dramatic comedy of this great Swedish director Lukas Moodysson. The story is very human and engaging, with many characters very well-developed that find themselves in a world of freedom and without repression, changing their behaviors and improving as human beings. Very hilarious, at least for South-Americans, the two boys playing of torture as if one of them was the Chilean General Augusto Pinochet. The integration promoted by the soccer game is fantastic. The soundtrack with hits of the 70’s is wonderful and another attraction.

Swedish and set in the 70s
If that wont do I’ve got a copy of Swedish Shower Sluts :wink:

Haha, no this film Tillsammans is not so interesting and not what you might think. It’s about some leftist hippie-style people in 70s Sweden, but the film is from 2000 and not very sensational :wink:

Director Lukas Moodysons earlier film Fucking Åmål or its international title Show Me Love from 1998 is much better, but not a sex-film either :wink:

It’s a cute and fun movie about some young girls in a small town who fall in love with each other, you should watch it!

Heavens above - teenage Swedish lesbians! :slight_smile: Whatever will the Good Lord dream up next?! Checked this on imdb and it gets fantastic reviews … I’ll look out for it. ‘Thriller’ (the uncut version) sounds pretty good as well. Still - seing as I’m deviating somewhat (oo-er) …

Yes it’s a lovely film!

The title is about the girls cursing (and they use this english word) their small town where nothing ever happens, a boring place for young people. Åmål is the name of the town.

The title was changed for the international release though since it could be considered offensive.

This was a low-budget production that became an unexpected huge success in Sweden, and later on was exported to many foreign countries where it also did well.

Overhere in Belgium it was one of the most succesful art-house movies of the decade.
Many schools bought the film; it is shown and discussed in class regularly.
A little gem.
(It was released under its original title here)

Thriller is one of the first true exploitation movies that I had seen and let me say I didnt know what I getting myself into ;D but I have been a fan of Lindberg ever since. The slow motion really caught my eye(ooh excuse the pun!) and its pretty amazing how entertaining thriller is even though the main character doesnt say one word.

Nice to hear!

It’s a little scary though how fast time passes by, it’s already almost 10 years ago this film premiered!

Feels more or less like it was yesterday :-\

if anyone is interested and wants to buy THRILLER be aware that there are 2 different versions available in the U.S.

There is an uncut version with all the hardcore scenes in and a soft version without, although i don’t know if it just sex cut out or violence aswell

Yes that’s right, the version called Thriller-A Cruel Picture has all the hardcore porn, that btw wasn’t filmed with Christina herself, she only ever did nude scenes in movies.

The version called Thriller-They Call Her One Eye has the porn cut out, as well as the “eye-scene”.

The yellow cover is the cut and the red dvd is the uncut.

(SARTANA DJANGO BALLADS) #15

Thanks for the link Me , very kind of you. :slight_smile:
I have not yet watched it but will be doing so very soon and will then review it fairly.
Every time I try to get 2 hours spare something comes up :’(


(DJANGO SARTANA) #16

SD, i’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on this one because IMO Thriller Along with Lado’s Night Train murders are two of the best examples of rev./exploitation.In all fairness I believe Deodato’s House on the Edge of the Park is also worth mentioning.


(SARTANA DJANGO BALLADS) #17

DS,
I have on DVD Region 1 Aldo Lado’s excellent NIGHT TRAIN MURDERS 75 , a cult classic
exploitation also to be watched asp :slight_smile: House On The Edge Of The Park I have on DVD :smiley: These 2 superb exploitation gems, along with Thriller-A Cruel picture are HOT viewing
:wink: I will review with enthusiasm after I see this trio, or as I see each one ;D


(me) #18

I havent seen Night Train Murders or House On The Edge Of The Park but they are on my to see list. I like Thriller but I think the revenge is sort of weak but I love the directing and the slo-mo shots.

Lindberg is back with the patch:
