  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Erotikon

    It is really a boring Swedish drama comedy about a loveless marriage where love is luckily still found within the family as the man in the house have a love affair with his own niece in what almost feels like an "accepted incest story". A stage show with a sexy dancer halfway in the film is why this movie has become famous, but most of the film feel like an theater play.

  3. El Biffo's rating of the film Erotikon

    Neither erotic, comical, nor amusing, I can only surmise that this relic has survived the test of time due to its (limited) prurient value. A sexy dance and an aeroplane scene are not sufficient to make this an interesting film. There are much better examples of Scandinavian silent cinema! For Instance: THE PHANTOM CARRIAGE, HAXAN, and others. This film is a bore, but the 2006 score added for the film is quite good.

  4. Weston Campbell's rating of the film Erotikon

    Hip and entertaining post-WWI romp with updated values and a few winks to the first film-going generation.

    A nice little gem from Sweden.

  6. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film Erotikon

    i dream of fit/unfit realtionships being solved with such an easy elegance.

  7. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Erotikon

    Dull and racy for its day melodrama with creative intertitles (especially funny during the professor's lecture on beetles). It was an inspiration to Lubitsch which is an overall benefit from the film.
