Don't waste your money.
This was pathetic. First of all I was only able to watch the first half of the movie. The rest would not play on any of 4 different DVD players including my computer. What I did see was a poorly made movie. Did they really make movies like this back then? There would be long pauses between phrases where the actors would stare at each other or out into space. The acting was simply atrocious. It was a total waste of time and money.

Very poor DVD quality transfer from original
By Smilin Sam
Despite their best efforts, this was one of the worst DVD transfers I've ever seen. There are lines running throughout the entire film and it gets very bad in some spots. The audio also rises and falls in volume unexpectedly. And the DVD jammed up and would not play through to the end (it stopped around a minute and a half before the end).
As for the film/story itself...I found it to be boring as all get out, and anything but erotic. The acting was wooden. And the music was annoying. 1 hour and 34 minutes, but it seemed like an Eternity. If this is one of Sarno's best, I'd hate to see his worst.
(Oh...and the wigs were absolutely hideous -- 70's or no 70's. They were so ugly they were distracting.)

An incest film with no incest
By Amazon Customer
Daddy Darling (filmed in Sweden by American Joe Sarno) is a film about a 19 year old - Katja (Helli Louise) who has a crush on her own father - Eric (Ole Wisborg). She becomes jealous when her father finds a new love of his life - Svea Karlson (Gio Petré).
In this coming-of-age film she experiences her first sexual awakenings with a friend of a friend, and then a lesbian art teacher and then ultimately her father's new love Svea Karlson.
She never gets it on with her own father, hence an incest film with no incest. She fantasises about her dad when she makes love to her first lover - Lars (Søren Strømberg) but that's as close as this film 'dares' take us. I suppose that was enough controversy for 1970, but seems rather lame now.
The film's quality - it's print - is poor in places. There are scratches over the image. This is no digital re-mastering.
