Movie Info

Not even Ingmar Bergman was prone to discuss his obscure 1955 production Dreams. While on vacation, photo agency owner Susanne (Eva Dahlbeck) hopes to rendezvous with her married lover. The man's wife puts the kibosh on this, whereupon Susanne enters into an affair with diplomat Sanderby Gunnar Bjornstrand. This liaison ends unhappily, leaving her sadder and wiser at vacation's end. So annoyingly confusing is Dreams that at times it resembles a Woody Allen parody of Bergman, rather than the … More

Critic Reviews for Kvinnodröm (Dreams) (Journey Into Autumn)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It is not a major concept he is dramatizing, and it lacks the hallmarks of imagination, expressive symbolism and poetic nuances of some of the truly memorable films that followed Dreams.

New York Times
Top Critic

Bergman's day-long, we-the-career-women saga places the shallow narcissism of youth along with the melancholy yearning of middle-age, or hope versus regret.

CinePassion

Lacks the gravitas of the director's more powerful latter psychological dramas but, nevertheless, shows-off his technical skills.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Scattered moments of rawness aside, the master of the spiritual crisis directs an unbalanced and uncharacteristically unconvincing melodrama.

Full Review… | July 30, 2007

This is not one of Ingmar Bergman's greats, but is a compelling film all the same.

Audience Reviews for Kvinnodröm (Dreams) (Journey Into Autumn)

½

Em uma produįão do início de sua carreira, o diretor sueco examina um de seus temas favoritos: a psique da mente feminina. Mais uma vez o cinema de personagem do mestre domina, e examinamos o dia de duas mulheres de personalidades distintas, mas com problemas amorosos semelhantes. A jovem e superficial modelo Doris (Harriet Andersson) abandona o namorado pobre e se deixa encantar por um senhor de idade que lhe enche de presentes. Já a segura e profissional fotķgrafa de moda Susanne (Eva Dalbeck) tenta dar continuidade ao caso que tinha com seu amante casado, apenas para ser puxada ā realidade pela esposa do mesmo.

Como o título sugere, Sonho de Mulheres joga a luz sobre a alma feminina, sendo que os homens da histķria são figuras fracas que deixam seus destinos serem controlados pelas mulheres em sua volta (uma bela composiįão mostra o marido de costas para a câmera cercado pela esposa e amante em primeiro plano discutindo o seu futuro). Como é característico do diretor, o lado escuro da personalidade humana também é posto em envidęncia, expondo até mesmo a face sombria de suas protagonistas. Assim como a histķria, o filme é uma produįão minimalista, sem o uso das composiįões ousadas que marcariam a obra de Bergman e sem mesmo apresentar uma trilha sonora. O que realmente prevalece é a maestria em sua direįão de atores e o seu domínio sobre a forma cinematográfica. Um filme menor mas não menos importante.

A very minor Bergman work, the film has traces of his style, especially in the first few scenes with quick edits and close-ups to draw attention to detail, as well as a well-filmed roller coaster ride. However, the screenplay does not match the quality of the directing, with basically two stories that do not gel all that well together. What the film is meant to be a study of is never clearly focused, with themes of desire as well as women's liberation both present. The middle section of the film dragged a little too, but still it is interesting to see such an early piece of work from Bergman. It is not much compared to what would later come in his career, but the film has enough interesting elements to certainly make it worth a look.

Saying its a lesser Bergman is like saying its the best from another director.
