Bergman’s episodic celebration of love centres on three wives on holiday.
Dir Ingmar Bergman
With Anita Björk, Maj-Britt Nilsson, Eva Dahlbeck, Gunnar Björnstrand, Birger Malmsten
Three wives on holiday divulge their feelings about their husbands; not only do the contents of their stories differ, but the tone and style of the telling. With its sparse dialogue and Parisian setting, the central episode is the most intriguing and ambitious, while the third, with Dahlbeck and Björnstrand trapped in a lift, is the most memorable for its sparky comedy. Great performances throughout.
