|Vibration (Lejonsommar) (1968) is a
Swedish art film whose main purpose was to show breasts and buns. It is the story of a struggling author who summers at an
artists colony on an island off the coast of Denmark.
The author, played by Sven-Bertil
instantly in lust with Margareta Sjödin, but dumps her rather quickly
in favor of Essy Persson, an actress relaxing in the colony for the
summer. Persson was Sweden's answer to Bardot, and has every bit as
