Marie Forså (Bel Ami, Butterflies) stars as Bibi, an innocent girl who leaves her home in the country for her sophisticated aunt’s boarding house. Once there, Bibi joyfully embarks on a series of sexual adventures with the other boarders, her aunt’s friend, and a trio of women at a nearby sauna. Bibi’s progression from innocent girl to a worldly jezebel – as evidenced in a pastoral whipping scene - is beautifully captured by cinematographer Peter Rohe, and director Sarno’s smart script ensures Bibi, while startlingly erotic, remains emotionally complex.
