Image from A Lesson in Love

Sweden 1954
Dir Ingmar Bergman
With Gunnar Björnstrand, Eva Dahlbeck, Yvonne Lombard, Harriet Andersson
English subtitles
Certificate PG

Keen to re-use the delightful comic talents displayed by Björnstrand and Dahlbeck in the final story of Waiting Women (screening next month), Bergman devised this pleasingly spiky comedy about a gynaecologist trying to win back his wife, who was driven away by his infidelity. An ingenious narrative structure and daring tonal shifts allow for sharp insights, sophisticated satire, profane language, riotous slapstick and underwear gags. A treat.
