A sixteen year old nymphomaniac attempts rehabilitation in ANITA, THE SWEDISH NYMPHET.

By the time Language of Love director Torgny Wickman’s film Anita (later titled Anita the Swedish Nymphet or Anita – ur en tonårsflickas dagbok) came out in 1974, Scandinavia’s reputation for making naughty films was already well known. Christina Lindberg (star of Maid in Sweden, They Call Her One Eye and notable for appearances in Playboy) stars as Anita, the sixteen year old nymphomaniac whose rebellious sexual acts with numerous strange men gets her into dangerous situations. Enter young psychology student Eric played by Stellan Skarsgard (in an interesting precursory role to Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac) who valiantly attempts to “cure” her. But her sexual acts are a protest to family and tradition so it won’t be an easy transformation. Sound familiar?
