    A terrific, emotional film. The acting is brilliant, the usage of red.... sublime! This is one of Bergman's best achievements. 9/10 8 years 4 months ago

    A quote from the movie perfectly describes how I felt watching it: "It is early Monday morning and I am in pain."

    Of all the movies I have watched this might be my least favorite. It was boring, tedious, pretentious and miserable. I couldn't relate to any of the characters either. Only 90 minutes long, but every second was painful suffering.

    Disappointing, as I've liked all the other Bergman movies I've seen.

    Beautifully filmed with the photo and the use of red. Good acting. But I found it, despite excellent lengths (about 1:28) at the time when you could "kill your darlings", small-scale. Beautiful and interesting environment similar to Fanny & Alexander.

    According to Bergman himself this is his best film together with "Persona". Won 1 Oscar for best cinematography (Sven Nykvist)! On FLM's top list of the 130 best Swedish films in history.
