Editorial Reviews

Christina Lindberg and Solveig Andersson met before in the violent cult-classic Thriller: A Cruel Picture and Swedish Wildcats. They meet yet again in Wide Open, Lindberg’s last starring role in a feature film! Taxi driver Paul and his beautiful journalist girlfriend Marianne have a strained relationship. Things get crazy when Paul brings his drunken father back to their apartment. As tensions between the two lovebirds rise, they decide to chill out at a wild movie party and things go from bad to worse (for Marianne anyway) when they both wake up in bed together with Marianne’s sister, Beryl! Marianne leaves, so Paul decides to spend some time watching strippers and taking Beryl along for some nighttime fun. Everything is going great, until Beryl gets picked up by the evil Mr. X and things turn dangerous. A stolen mink coat, drugs, and violent sex games lead Paul and Beryl to confront Mr. X during the film’s perverse stag party climax! Chock full of nudity and sex, Wide Open is a must for all fans of sexy Swedish sin-ema!

Fans of 70's Swedish sex kitten Christina Lindberg may wish to check out this film which is billed as Ms Lindberg's last movie appearance. I would note that there is now a NTSC Region 1 version of "Wide Open" available from Impulse DVD so N. American viewers can enjoy the expereince . All that said - "Wide Open" is actually not all that great a flik, nor does one get as much of Christina as might be wished for, and is implied by her prominent appearance on the box cover art! The Impulse disc 'extras' includes an interesting, contemporary, interview with both the film's Director, Gustav Wicklund, and Ms Lindberg herself (still looking pretty hot after all these years!)... that sheds some light on aspects of the film. Wicklund had previously directed Lindberg in the (much better) film: "Exposed" and was hoping to cash in on her popularity again with his new concept of a crossover softcore sex/gangster film. However, Lindberg had just returned from making big bucks on a Japanese movie deal ("Sex & Fury" and "Journey To Japan") and her, newly, inflated fees only allowed Wicklund to hire her for two days of shooting... thus her presence in "Wide Open" is relatively minimal. Still her time on screen is used to good advantage as she is pretty much gloriously naked throughout in scenes as diverse as a porno photo shoot to nude vacume cleaning in her boyfriend's apartment.

The overall filmic experience of "Wide Open" is pretty uneven. The director was apparently attempting to create a blend of sexiness and criminal intrigue with a light comedic overtone. From my perspective he didn't do a very good job of merging the genres. The plot involves a low life guy who is living with two sisters and enjoying sex with both of them.

Quite primitive in everything it has redeeming value in Cristine Lindberg showing her goodies numerous times. Basically all movie is artificial, no imagination, amateurish, high school level etc.

Big breasts for sure, but Lindbergh is NOT center stage in this vintage 70s schlock. However, it has enough cheese to be "so bad it's good" and ultimately is best enjoyed in the company of friends.

I didn't really expect very much, but if you like the cover you will probably like the Movie. The plot involving gangsters and dope, a sadist, and various relationships was not particularly compelling, but the nudity was good.

Although selected by search function and listed as "adult", it is by no means X; it's more like PG. The plot is boring and the acting is forgettable. The characters are almost always clothed. Positively, the dubbing is good and the photography interesting and well done.
