CHRISTINA LINDBERG: THE ORIGINAL EYEPATCH WEARING BUTT KICKING MOVIE BABE
From Sweden’s foremost centrefold to Quentin Tarantino’s favourite actress, Christina Lindberg made some twenty films in the early seventies, then she disappeared. Some were so violent they were immediately banned, others slipped through the cracks of memory. One made her a legend: the 1973 Thriller – A Cruel Picture, one of cult cinema’s highest calibres. Now, 40 years later she is making her comeback to the silver screen.
A long overdue documentary lesson on Swedish (s)exploitation star Christina Lindberg, the original eyepatch wearing butt kicking movie babe, accompanied by a Master Class from the lady herself!
“The coolest actress in Sweden.”
– Quentin Tarantino
