Storyline

A love triangle through the four seasons. A young woman, living in a relationship, falls in love with a married man. If someone had told her that she in a few months should be the man's mistress, she would become aggrieved and indignant. She was certainly not a woman who would mess with married men.

A director under the influence.
23 September 2015 | by ulf-635-523367See all my reviews

It could have become a French film, presumably a comedy, a frivolous nocturne in which the woman accepted their dual disadvantage and cooing placed in the booth for forbidden toys. But now it is a Swedish film, a Scandinavian film. And that makes all the difference. Bibbi Andersson's young woman is torn between her boyfriend and her new lover, the older married man. The boyfriend, Per Myrberg, has a futile role as a demanding, over-loving and unsafe puppy. Max Von Sydow is powerful to behold as usual. Bibi Andersson was in an accumulation of great performances these days. A loop that ended with "Persona" in 1966. The film itself is a bagatelle. Yet filled with passion, style, analytical images and artistic transitions. A railway compartment is a very good venue in this case. Ingmar Bergman is clearly brooding on Vilgot Sjömans right shoulder. Vilgot is under the influence of the great director.
