Christina Lindberg goes "pink"
23 April 2009 | by lazarilloSee all my reviews

Swedish sex star Christina Lindberg never appeared in any truly graphic sex films, but in her home country she frequently appeared in "roughie"-type films where she was raped, tied up, and otherwise abused. Perhaps it's not too surprising therefore that she ended up making a couple "pink" films in Japan where they really specialized in this kind of thing in the 1970's. Lindberg plays a Swedish porn star who comes to work in Japan(not much of a stretch there). She accidentally gets in the wrong cab with socially maladjusted, virginal cabdriver. Due to misunderstandings as a result the language barrier, she ends up at his apartment where he rapes her. Then he ties her up, photographs her naked and bound, and rapes her some more. She eventually develops Stockholm syndrome and seems to fall in love with her captor, at first perhaps just to get the upper hand, but later quite genuinely (after another horrible misadventure at a Yakuza-owned nightclub).

Obviously, this film is very "politically incorrect" and definitely not for everyone. People who cannot distinguish between reality and ripe and ridiculous exploitation like this (whether they be sexual deviants or hypersensitive feminist-types) will definitely want to avoid this movie. Relatively speaking, Lindberg is actually treated with quite a bit of respect compared to what Japanese actresses usually had to suffer in "pink" films like this. The rape and bondage scenes are nowhere near as graphic as they could be, and since this is Japanese rather than Swedish there's not even the usual full-frontal nudity (but plenty of shots of Lindberg's impressive boobs and butt).

I didn't like this as much as "Sex and Fury", Lindberg's other venture into the Japenese "pink" films where she was teamed with sexy Japanese actress Reiko Ikke, and there was actually something of a plot. But at least there not trying to pass her off "British" here (Lindberg spoke English even less fluently than most Japanese do). I've seen almost all of Lindberg's films and a good deal of Japanese "pink" films and this one is fairly typical of both.
