Ingmar Bergman’s Cannes prize-winning comedy assembles various couples in a country house in 1900.

Comedy 1955 109 mins

Director: Ingmar Bergman

Overview

An inspiration to Woody Allen, Stephen Sondheim et al, Ingmar Bergman’s Cannes prize-winning comedy assembles various couples – current, past or would-be – in a country house in 1900, and cheerily observes their often less-than-honest interactions as they strive to fulfil their various desires. Pithily scripted, elegantly shot and designed, performed to perfection by a superb cast, it brought Bergman international renown.
