  1. ruthlornaadele's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Language of love, syntax of sex or non intimacy in IKEA. Amazing blast from the past. Waiting for the advice to 'duck and cover'

  2. petra moonshine's rating of the film The Language of Love

    a wide range of great visuals

  3. Sin título.'s rating of the film The Language of Love

    La nueva (o más bien vieja...) promoción de los placeres de la sexualidad no reproductiva, claro siempre abordada de manera científica y con cierta comedia involuntaria que en ocasiones es divertida. Definitivamente no es el mejor trabajo de Torgny Wickman pero vale la pena darle un vistazo.

  4. mpho3's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Took balls to make this, though there are far more vag shots. Also a lot of pipe smoking, bad hair (from head to jowl to upper lip to old forest growth down below), primitive animation, birds chirping, and the quaint prediction that w/ the sexual revolution will come (no pun intended) more equality for women. At times I was in eww of this time capsule, but I admired the intent and appreciated the unintended chuckles.

  5. OcioActivo's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Admire its intention. An honest attempt to teach. Not an interesting film however. A chore to watch. Clinical and factual, nothing cinematic to latch onto (not its intention though). Sexual, not sexy.

  6. Superfrog's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Purely of historical interest.

  7. Lucas Haynes's rating of the film The Language of Love

    You would have to be pretty sexually depraved to sit through all 1 hour & 40 minutes of old, infertile scientists rabbling on about love & sexual experiences that they never have had & will have mixed in with some rather exploitative & uncomfortable numbers that last for way too long. I wonder what purpose that's for? No, no, it is all very scientific. Nothing smutty going on here. I sat through the whole thing.

  8. Ahmet UJeschk's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Zamanında TRT4'te açıköğretim dersleri arasında bu film de olsaydı, 70 milyon üniversite mezunumuz olurdu.

  9. CeeTee's rating of the film The Language of Love

  10. Tutu888's rating of the film The Language of Love

    If this was my first encounter with sex I wonder if I would have a sexlife at all.

  11. geiar's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Watch it as a document of the time. Interesting as such, a little funny at times, but pretty boring in its educational intention, and some parts downright hideous (gynecological examinations for heaven's sake!)

  12. Casanorte's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Una clase explícita de sexo, sobre todo para la época. Tiene que haber sido una película rompe esquemas

  13. El Biffo's rating of the film The Language of Love

    This really IS an educational film. The very realistic masturbation scene, and the demonstrations of sexuality, are instructive to young people who may not know how to do these things.The weird part of this film is that all of the "sex experts" are smoking the whole time that they sit around talking about masturbation and sexual positions.

  14. jamesey's rating of the film The Language of Love

    My rating of "3" is just a placeholder. I don't know if I can rate an educational piece like this. I'm sure this was innovative at the time of release. What I want to know is would you show this (or parts) to your children in modern day? I don't have kids, so I'm not in a place to decide this.

  15. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Some of those people should not be allowed to have sex.

  16. 101010101010110's rating of the film The Language of Love

  17. globalposse@hotmail.com's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Back to basics in our troubled post-porn age, where in this 1969 docudrama, we remember human intimacy as a gift jointly contributed and not the commodified, corrupted idea being sold back to us by the corporates as humiliation, pain and power in 2015. A must see for the Masters and Johnson team of quirky experts, graphics and "real simulations". Squirm and laugh at how they construct the language of love.

  18. ajdehany's rating of the film The Language of Love

    A compelling point in its conclusion that finds in the 1960s sexualisation of commodity culture a new 'look but don't touch' puritanism. Cute but warmly valuable argument that sexual intimacy is seen as an aspect of love rather than for its own sake.

  19. Corinne Gilroy's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Quite an artefact. Recommended if you're fascinated by the nuts and bolts of the sexual revolution & sex education. Will bore you to tears if you're not at least somewhat taken with its '60s modernist aesthetic and kitschy background music. Clinically and socially, it hasn't aged well: sex acts beyond PIV intercourse are not taken seriously; non-cis/het sexuality might as well not exist.

  20. bcdcdude's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Carry On up the Documentary...

  21. Na Talia's rating of the film The Language of Love

  22. Milos Mijakovac's rating of the film The Language of Love

  23. Mirkle's rating of the film The Language of Love

    Four Swedish academics sit smoking and drinking tea while pontificating in heavily accented English about sex ('I should like to mention the practice of pleasuring oneself') intercut with shots of a woman wanking and a family of bears at the zoo. Absolutely bonkers, and the funniest film which didn't intend to be funny I think I've ever seen.

  24. Mariana's rating of the film The Language of Love

    This film IS about love. And it's lovely.
