Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This Swedish sex farce/drama (by Vilgot Sjoman, who made a splash with I Am Curious, Yellow), explores the complications in the relationship of a couple who believe that if they make love to each other, they will die. They neck and are physically affectionate in public as well as in private, but have a big taboo against sexual consummation. Their situation drives them to distraction, and they unsuccessfully seek various extramarital outlets for their frustrations. When they do finally make love, it appears that they do die, but like the mythical figures they resemble, they rise again.
