Exponerad (1971) - Gustav Wiklund

With periodic flashbacks and fantasy sequences, Exposed, in terms of its narrative structure at least, is a bit more complicated than your average sexploitation picture. While on the surface Lena is a typical, if flawed, central character the film lets us get into her head enough that even if we don't completely see her as an innocent, we can at least feel for her. Her plight with Helge and his blackmailing ways is a sticky situation to be sure and while his coercion into the world of kinky sex allows for many titillating sequences, you can't help but feel sorry for Lena. That said, she uses her sexuality to put herself in rather precarious situations and at times you almost wonder if she subconsciously wants the dysfunction that seems to follow her around. Consider this alongside the way that she's treated by most of the men in the film, whose eyes linger on her quite voraciously, and you're left trying to figure out how much of her dire situation she's put herself in, rather than found herself in.

In terms of the acting, Lindberg is really quite good here. Her natural doe-eyed innocent looks really lends itself perfectly to the role and she mixes this with her smoldering sexuality to make for a memorable performance, one in which she often looks comfortably numb. While she's naked as often as she's clothed (and that is something that can easily distract fans of the female form from her acting ability) she really is unnervingly effective in the role. Equally impressive, at least in terms of acting ability if not on a physical level, if Heinz Hopf's deliciously sleazy turn at Helge. Bjorn Adelly is perfectly fine as Jan, but it's Hopf as Helge who really stands out in the male cast, as he really epitomizes the typical sleazy male predator.

Teetering on the edge of ‘art film' territory at times, the picture does a good job of making us think, particularly in terms of what's happened in the real world versus what's happened in Lena's fantasy world. The set design sometimes reflects these differences and possibly offers some clues in that regard - you'll notice that the picture varies between nice, out door shots and barely decorated and often bleak interiors. The cinematography and score accentuate these differences at times, making Exposed a film of legitimate artistic merit. As trashy and sordid as it at times can be, it's quite a well made picture and one that proves Lindberg really was much more than just another pretty face.

Tabor ukhodit v nebo aka Gypsies Are Found Near Heaven (1975) - Emil Loteanu

IMDB Review:

Author: lerelieurfou ( from Montreal, Quebec

"it is simply the best gypsy movie, translating so well their thirst of freedom, for 'the road'...i saw it on tv as 'Les Tziganes s'en vont vers les cieux, in a children-family program, but i think it surpasses all the Kusturica-Gatlif spoofs depicting Gypsies. This one here depicts all the tragedy of the gypsy people, torn between materialism and freedom. The opening is a piece of anthology as the old sage predicts Zabor his near future and warns him : Dont trust any woman...and remember that freedom is the most important value...' And ahhh....Svetlana!!! so marvelous dancing and saying to Zabor : 'Dont look at me this way, it's forbidden...' To see for the proudness, the height of the feelings, the friendship, the love, so pure....but leading to tragic endings in a gadjo world... a must for gypsy-movies lovers as much as : Autrefois, nous étions des oiseaux, from Garri"

Zusje AKA Little Sister (1995) - Robert Jan Westdijk

Martijn visits, after several years without contact, his sister Daantje (Kim Van Kooten) who has just started to live on her own in Amsterdam. Martijn enters her life with a videocamera.

Although already 10 years old, this movie remains one of the most inventive films ever made in the Netherlands, and launched the careers of Kim van Kooten and the director, Robert-Jan Westdijk. The captivating performance by Kim van Kooten and her talking into the camera gave me the feeling that I was intruding in something very private.Her fantastic looks in a "girl next door" kind of way, made that feeling even stronger. The supporting cast are also very true to life. I do not want to give anything away of the storyline, since the viewer really has to let himself get drawn into the story and experience the fantastic twist at the end.It is still a shame that dutch cinema is not seen on a bigger platform, due to the language barrier and that it seems that even academy award winning films like The Assault, Antonia and Character are largely unknown outside the Netherlands and the relatively small group of European film lovers in America.

Secrets of a Door-to-Door Salesman (1974) - Wolf Rilla

Following his father's death lobster fisherman David decides to move to London in search of fame and fortune. Lodging in an all-female boarding house he finds himself with a rather enviable problem: all the girls fancy him!

The bashful David is initially reticent, but soon lands himself a role in a sex film and then a job selling vacuum cleaners door-to-door - where he's a big hit with the bored housewives. After enjoying a series of erotic adventures, David returns to his home village older, wiser, and a little more experienced!

A provincial lobster fisherman (Brendan Price) decides to come to London for some reason and winds up in a boardinghouse full of luscious lovelies. One them (Sue Longhurst) is an "actress" who gets him a job with her on a "blue movie" where she proceeds to shag the holy hell out of him for the British version--and then they do the "continental version"! Another of the girls, "Sally Cockburn" (pronounced "Coburn"), comes home to find him occupying her old room and bed, so even though they've never met, she proceeds to strip off and hop into bed with him. Felicity Devonshire meanwhile plays the youngest of the girls, a "17-year-old" who would no doubt succeed in teasing him to death, constantly flouncing around seriously under-dressed and begging him "to make her a woman", if he weren't getting so much sexual release from her "older" housemates.

There's also a repressed religious girl and a nice Jewish girl who get him a job as a door-to-door salesman at the vacuum-cleaner company where she works, which finally justifies the title. Of course, this also gives him an opportunity to have even MORE sex with various randy housewives (and it gives the script a lot of opportunities to make bad jokes about "sucking" and "blowing"). This whole time though he has fallen in love with a French au pair (Jean Harrison), who he first picks up on the highway wrapped only in a towel after one of HER romantic escapades has gone awry, and he tries to convince her to stay in England. This movie has the kind of "fooled-around-and-fell-in-love" thing going, much more typical of Hollywood sex comedies, where it ultimately tries to move from raunchy to romantic. And like most of its Hollywood ilk, it is not entirely successful.

Still, I always enjoy Sue Longhurst and Felicity Devonshire (they were crumpet, but definitely grade-A crumpet) and Price and most of the other actors are pretty OK. Amazingly, this movie was directed by Wolf Rilla, who years earlier had directed the British horror/sci-fi classic "Village of the Damned". Obviously, HIS career had seen better days. But this is not an entirely embarrassing effort, especially as far as THIS genre goes.
