The Girls

Originaltitel: Original title: Flickorna

Mai Zetterling’s feminist classics ‘The Girls’ shook her contemporaries at the premiere in 1968. With Bibi Andersson, Harriet Andersson andGunnel Lindblom in the lead roles, we follow a theater company that repeats Aristophanes play Lysistrate where the women in Athens are rebelling to force the men to stop the war. It doesn’t take long before the women in the theater company begin to see their own time, their lives and relationships, from the perspective of Lysistrate. Provocative, bold, humorous and wayward in Zetterling’s most pronounced feminist film that made a whole generation of (male) critics lose it. Scenes of the filmare shot in Karlskrona! Seminar after the screening. Screenplay: Mai Zetterling, David Hughes Genre: Drama, Comedy
