| Interesting little soap opera with a lesbian theme.
Movies don't get much more obscure than this--though this one may be a little better remembered in Denmark than here in the U.S. Threesome is nonetheless notable for having the first screen appearance of the talented Judy Brown (Judith M. Brown) plus the fact that it was among a group of Scandanavian movies supposedly seized by U.S. Customs around 1970 for allegedly being pornographic. The best known of these seized movies, later released uncut after a court battle, is, of course, "I Am Curious Yellow." Threesome is not nearly as well known as "I Am Curious" but it's a better movie, IMO. Brown plays an American married to a Danish fashion designer. She becomes increasingly infatuated with one of his female models (Marianne Tholsted). I wouldn't call it porn, so if that's what you are expecting you'll probably be disappointed. Despite some fairly explicit scenes, it's more like a contemporary, independent art-house film that you might see at some trendy venue like the Film Forum in NY. The prints were Technicolor so if you ever are able to find one you'll discover the color has held up very well compared to most of the faded Eastman prints of this era. It's an interesting little soap opera that deserves to eventually be rediscovered.
