All in all, these classic Danish pastries are quite fun. The films are meant for adult audiences who are in the mood for a few light laughs and don’t mind seeing some flesh. A few of the movies’ more explicit sex scenes are actually done by the actors themselves, but it is pretty obvious at times that some of the dirty deeds are being performed by stand-ins. Either way, these moments are weaved into the “regular” film quite admirably, and never take away any of the “magic.”
I was pleasantly surprised at the presentations here and Smirk has done a wonderful job in presenting these features. Each movie looks positively stunning and is presented in an anamorphic widescreen ratio of 1.78:1. Accompanying the films are the original Danish Stereo soundtracks (which also come through surprisingly well) and optional English subtitles just in case you’re wondering what the hell those darn Danes are saying.
The only special features found on these releases consist of an image gallery on each DVD. Most of the time, it seems that the images were taken directly from the disc’s respective feature presentation and the galleries are set to music from the film in question.
With their whimsical premises, detailed costumes and sets, and a flair for just having fun in general, these movies are a blast from the naughty nostalgic past. And, whether our onscreen characters are having an underwater orgy set to Burt Bacharach’s “What The World Needs Now Is Love” or chasing each other around in a very Benny Hill style way, Smirk’s collection of Classic Danish Erotica Series delivers. And remember: it’s not porn, but rather freelovin’ fun.
