Ingmar Bergman


Trauma, guilt, pain and restorative relationships – this Bergman script has it all.

Sweden 1948
Dir Gustaf Molander
With Birger Malmsten, Eva Stiberg, Eva Dahlbeck, Stig Olin
English subtitles
Certificate PG

Though directed (like the previous year’s Woman Without a Face) by the veteran Molander, this is clearly from a Bergman script, with the protagonist (Malmsten) guilt-ridden over a childhood incident and seeking happiness through his relationship with a woman he knew as a boy. The interest in trauma, guilt, pain and restorative relationships is pure Bergman; the flashback structure also typifies his early style.
