After her mother dies, seventeen year old Inga goes off to live with her attractive 30 something aunt Greta. Greta is sort of in a financial bind due to her young lover Karl, and his expensive ways. Greta schemes to sell of Inga’s affections to a wealthy old man who likes ’em young but the entire plan fails when Inga hops in the sack with Karl and the two run off together. This leaves Greta broke, guy less and unhappy to say the least…
Inga is a very good entry in sexploitation cinema, courtesy of the Joe Sarno, who managed to create a film with a striking and compelling story, along with a great score and more than good camera job, which isn’t that common within its respective genre. The pacing is well done and avoids the all well-known holes and boring fillers, which usually add nothing to the story. The acting is very good too, Liljedahl as Inga with her virgin-underage looks adds even more spice to the picture, creating the aura of watching something controversial, hence making it polarising – at least when it came out. Other than that, the “free love” generation of the 60s is captured just right and gives you a great look at the life of the ones who lived in this period.
Everybody who is seriously interested in the sexploitation or erotic film genre in general should get this into their systems asap.
Don’t know why the screenies look so damn dark, the movie itself surely isn’t.
