Stockholm, late 70's: the model utopian society. Political neutrality and atomic power march hand in hand with women's liberation and the sexual revolution. But beneath the polished surface lurks a corrupt, seedy underworld of strip shows and sex clubs where dreams are made and lives are destroyed. Iris, a young girl from the bottom rung of society, is forced to work as a call girl within this ruthless and murky world, where power can get you anything.

Brilliant expose of supposedly liberal, perfect, collective, socialist Swedish society - Call Girl review by PV

Spoiler Alert

This is probably the best Swedish film I have ever seen. It's an expose of the can of worms under the Utopian façade of the perfect liberal collective Swedish society which hated the individual and puts total faith in politicians.

Remember that Scandinavian countries legalised all porn incl vile child and animal porn until the late 70s; they also abstained and were neutral in WWII; they also sterilised the young children of socalled 'undesirables' (alcoholics, drug addicts, right wing political people, former Nazis, the mentally ill) up until the late 70s. This submission to the collective will is very dangerous - no-one in Scandinavia spoke up and against the insane government policies at the time in Sweden, Norway, Denmark. Shocking.

I do not know if the scandal here is true re big Swedish politicians in 1976 using young underage girls from care homes as prostitutes - but it could be. And in the UK, the police and authorities turned a blind eye to Asian Muslim gangs grooming and raping underage white girls for 16 years in norther English towns - so these things do happen. I'd love to see a movie about the latter but no-one would dare in these pc days.

Perhaps a bit overlong but really authentic and spot-on re fashions etc in 1976.

Great stuff - an important film.
