Something Is Sexy In The State Of Denmark

More '60s sexploitation, this time with one of the earliest and most popular Danish sex comedies, 1965's Sytten, released in the U.S. in 1967 as Eric Soya's 17. (Novelist Soya is best known for his book Jenny and the Soldier, incidentally.) The plot is the usual coming-of-age fodder about a turn-of-the-century youth arriving from Copenhagen to a small town where he loses his virginity, and lots of women run around giggling, showing off their lingerie, and luring men into their bedrooms. After this film and I Am Curious (Yellow), Denmark and Sweden basically started a competition to see who could turn out the dirtiest "mainstream" films, which lasted well into the late 1970s. The score by sex-com veteran Ole Høyer is light and elegant, with an emphasis on period flavor and romantic love themes.
