A ballerina recalls a joyous summer fling with an earnest admirer.
Dir Ingmar Bergman
With Maj-Britt Nilsson, Birger Malmsten, Alf Kjellin
The first of Bergman’s films to focus entirely on the experiences of a woman, this centres on a ballerina (Nilsson) who is suddenly reminded of her joyous, almost innocent relationship with an earnest admirer (Malmsten) during an idyllic sojourn in the Stockholm archipelago years earlier. Nilsson’s performance effortlessly embraces a wide range of emotions, and Gunnar Fischer’s camera luxuriates in the summer light.
