I Am Curious (Blue) (1968)


Bil’s rating (out of 5):  BB

Original title:  Jag Ar Nyfiken – En Film I Blatt

Sweden, 1968.  Sandrews.  Screenplay by Vilgot Sjoman.  Cinematography by .  Produced by .  Music by , .  Film Editing by ,

This film is more of the same stuff you saw in its predecessor, I Am Curious (Yellow): the irritatingly inquisitive  traverses Sweden interviewing citizens about the status of class conflicts and sexual freedom in their society. There’s the odd flash of boob, plus the (relatively tame) male frontal nudity that is most likely the cause of all the stir these two films received in their time, but the characters are dull and the lack of a strong plot makes for a very frustrating experience. Nyman isn’t an attractive enough personality to make anything palatable out of something so formless, and Sjoman seems to just be hashing together extra film that was left over from the Yellow installment. A mercy that it is at least shorter than the first one.

The Criterion Collection:  #181
