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
Bergman’s celebration of love centres on three wives on holiday, who divulge their feelings about their husbands; not only do the contents of their stories differ significantly, but so does the tone and style of the telling. The glorious final episode, with Dahlbeck and Björnstrand trapped in a lift, is the most memorable for its sparky comedy, though each is a gem, beautifully performed.
