Sixty Nine 69

Feb 01, 2008

Jörn Donner, Finland, 1969, 35 mm, 98 min

SIXTYNINE, Jörn Donner's second Finnish production after having defected to Sweden for the early part of his career, is a gleeful game of sexual noughts and crosses, with two men and two women interacting with one another in a series of situations that poke fun at everything from dentistry to gynecology, post-sauna sex to dog breeding. The film gives a bittersweet account one woman's experience learning lessons of marriage and love lost and found. The title refers to the year the film was made.
