Summer Interlude

1951 *** 96 mins.

Although this film was a bit of a turning point in Bergman's career, creatively, it's not a very memorable film, fading into the background of his better, more famous works. It's still worth a viewing for the dedicated fan, though. Maj-Britt Nilsson plays Marie, a ballet dancer who remembers one wonderful summer with a young man, while living through her dull present. As I said, nothing special, but worth at least one viewing.
