Winner of the Palme d’or and Best Actress prize in Cannes, this Bergman-scripted drama concerns the courtship and early marriage of his own mother and father. Initially battling against parental wishes and social inequality, they later find themselves troubled by what they come to realise are rather different temperaments. Bille August elicits strong performances from a cast that includes von Sydow, who is excellent as the bride’s father.
