Quentin Tarantino Stimulated to Write Swedish Soft-Core Film

Ikea wasn’t the only thing that put Swedish Architecture on the map.

Quentin Tarantino has a penchant for reviving under-recognized genres. Reservoir Dogs put gangster films into the public eye again; Jackie Brown updated blaxploitation and his last film Death Proof made its associations as clear as possible as part of a collection called Grindhouse.

Next on his revivalist roster is Scandinavian Soft-Core. For those of us less familiar with Stockholm Sex Farces, these were usually comedies about married or single (s)experimenters living in (usually) posh apartments in the sexy capital of Sweden or Denmark or some other European nation where it snows. Scandinavian Softcore commonly involved politics by featuring class mixing and Swedish Softcore films were rather famous for their displays of luxurious or high fashion home interiors.

Tarantino reaffirmed that this project would be in the style of his previous efforts while talking to The London Daily Telegraph: “I came up with the idea of like a cool sex movie that would take place in Stockholm, with a couple of Americans visiting a couple of Swedish friends…Kind of like the girls in Death Proof, just going out drinking, having a good time, hooking up.”

Tarantino’s known for pushing the envelope. “If I actually do an erotic movie, I’m going to have to reveal what I find sexy, what turns me on. And when it comes to sex in movies, it’s got to be kind of kinky, because that’s what’s cinematic, that’s what’s fun.”

Seems like the fans will be getting to know even more about QT than they ever could have expected from Kill Bill.
