Adapted from a short story by Ulla Isaksson, this affecting chamberwork charts the experiences of three patients at a maternity hospital who, for various reasons, have very different attitudes to their pregnancies. Bergman makes expressive use of the austere yet claustrophobic clinical environment, while his superb lead trio shared the Best Actress prize in Cannes; he, meanwhile, was named Best Director.
