Description by OLDIES.com:
Christina Lindberg and Solveig Andersson met before in the violent cult-classic Thriller: A Cruel Picture and Swedish Wildcats. They meet yet again in Wide Open, Lindberg's last starring role in a feature film! Taxi driver Paul and his beautiful journalist girlfriend Marianne have a strained relationship. Things get crazy when Paul brings his drunken father back to their apartment. As tensions between the two lovebirds rise, they decide to chill out at a wild movie party and things go from bad to worse (for Marianne anyway) when they both wake up in bed together with Marianne's sister, Beryl! Marianne leaves, so Paul decides to spend some time watching strippers and taking Beryl along for some nighttime fun. Everything is going great, until Beryl gets picked up by the evil Mr. X and things turn dangerous. A stolen mink coat, drugs, and violent sex games lead Paul and Beryl to confront Mr. X during the film's perverse stag party climax! Chock full of nudity and sex, Wide Open is a must for all fans of sexy Swedish sin-ema!
Just one year after appearing onscreen together in the notorious THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE, Christina Lindberg and Solveig Andersson reteam for this erotic drama about a young couple caught-up in a dangerous ménage-a-trois. Paul and his girlfriend Marianne are experiencing a rough patch in their relationship when Paul invites his alcoholic father over for a visit. It isn't long before the tensions in the apartment grow thick, prompting Paul and Marianne to head out for a wild night at the movies. When they wake up the following morning, Marianne's sister Beryl is snuggled up in bed beside them. Enraged, Marianne storms out, leaving her sister and Paul alone together. But when the malevolent Mr. X lures Beryl away to a kinky stag party, Paul gives chase in a bid to rescue her from being irreparable corrupted.
