I, a Woman
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
I, a Woman (Jag - en kvinna) is a 1965 Swedish/Danish co-produced film by Mac Ahlberg. The film starred Essy Persson as femme fatale/sexual adventurer with an open-minded perspective on female sexuality. Based on the autobiographical novel by Agnethe Thomsen (writing as Siv Holm). The film is most compelling when seen in light of the labored progress of feminist discourse; it's an artifact from a time when the notion of a woman taking charge of her sexual life was both risqué and revolutionary.
It was done as a flashback and a little slow for American audiences, so Radley Metzger trimmed it up and had quite a success with it in the United States.
