Anita: Swedish Nymphet is a 1973 erotic drama film directed by Torgny Wickman, starring Christina Lindberg and Stellan Skarsgård.

Plot[edit]

This erotic tale centers on the alluring Anita (Christina Lindberg), whose search for love leads to an empty life of nymphomania. Anita's self-destructive path takes a new turn when she meets college student Erik (Stellan Skarsgård), who tries to help her overcome her addiction. Erik plays the role of counselor as Anita slowly reveals her troubled past, but will his prescription of ultimate ecstasy really cure her?

The film was made in Stockholm, Katrineholm and the church in Vadsbro with its two towers.
