Unlike most exploitation films, Anita takes itself seriously. The disorder of nymphomania is looked at in a serious manner and not just as a reason for Christina Lindberg to fuck every man in sight. That or Sweden has to put effort in to justifying cheap sex. Christina Lindberg’s nude body speaks for itself. When you watch Anita, you’re watching it to see her. Without Lindberg and maybe Skarsgard, you would have no reason to see the film.
Anita is also not up on her studies. Her cold father becomes angered at her for not knowing who Erwin Rommel is. Anita’s homely sister of course knows who he is. Anita’s nymphomania is caused by her family troubles. Anita has a truly positive family message. Tons of sex = really shitty family. Nordic folks have always been fans of sexual repression.
Unfortunately Anita doesn’t live up to the quality of the masterpiece that is Thriller: A Cruel Picture. Hardcore pornography, eye gouging, and mass killings are nonexistent in Anita. I would even go as far as to say that Anita is lighthearted (especially in comparison to Thriller). Anita is still worthy of being watch, especially if you’re a fan of Christian Lindberg. Real tits always beat silicone.
