Summer with Monika

Sommaren med Monika

Sex, sea and sun in the Stockholm archipelago: a recipe for rebellious teen romance, Bergman-style.

Image from Summer with Monika

Sweden 1953
Dir Ingmar Bergman
With Harriet Andersson, Lars Ekborg, John Harryson
English subtitles
Certificate PG

This landmark in Bergman’s career focuses on the passionate but blighted affair of two teenagers in early 1950s Stockholm: Monika is such a free spirit that, notwithstanding their idyllic holiday in the archipelago, the more routinely pragmatic Harry feels he can’t keep up with her. Refusing to judge Monika, the writer-director simply observes her revelling in youthful sensuality and a lust for life.
