In the presence of Christina Lindberg

Anita is 17, and can’t manage her sexual urges. One day, she meets Eric (Stellan Skarsgård), a young musician majoring in psychology. Will their platonic love save Anita from her peculiar condition? Director Torgny Wickman was a reporter before shooting films in the ’50s, and was mostly focused on sexuality matters. In this film, he’s bringing a close look at a pathology usually lightly exploited in kinky movies: nymphomania. More dramatic than actually erotic, “Anita” is also Christina’s last major role to date.
