all the sex takes place off camera
Hard to know quite what to say about this. My print is titled, Dagmar's Hot Pants, and at least the name change is appropriate as she never wears any hot pants. This was clearly made in the heady days of the mini-skirt, although they don't look so 'mini' now, but released at the hight of the 'hot pants' craze, thereby tempting the powers that be to try and cash in. Of course, even today's shorts are actually 'hotter' than the infamous 'hot pants'. But enough! Back to the film, reluctantly. Supposedly a sex comedy, but like the British ones of the period, it is neither very funny or very sexy. The girls look OK and Diana Kjaer does well enough in the lead although she would hardly get much attention today, I would guess. The men are all awful and far too old. There are a few nice touches, Copenhagen location shooting, a montage of sexy antics and some decent dialogue but although there is plenty of nudity, all the sex takes place off camera. Probably just as well.
