Summer With Monika (Sommaren med Monika) Reviews

Bryant Frazer
Film Freak Central

In the annals of Early Bergman, Summer with Monika is The Big One. The irony is that it's among the slightest of his works.

Bergman fans will discover that it's not a typical film of his, and is rather more realistic than his later films, and some would call it "minor." But by any standards, it's an excellent film, gorgeously made and emotionally powerful.

A sensual elegy along the lines of Ovid's 'Amores' and very much a movie about photographing Harriet Andersson

It's one of Bergman's most natural, carnal and accessible films.

A fully realized Bergman psychodrama, rather than an early model for his later work.

More than 50 years after its first screening in America, Monika arrives in New York again to light up the screen, this time without a trace of impropriety.

Bergman's tale of heedless teenage love is a sort of neorealist Rebel Without a Cause -- except that sex is acknowledged and the outlaw is a girl.

Bergman would be no more adept a pornographer than he would be at filming hip-hop, but his camera did stare at the human surface with an intentness unmatched since von Sternberg rhapsodized over Marlene Dietrich.

A tender yet unsentimental account of a love affair that turns sour.

Subtle but sharply observed, it remains one of Bergman's most watchable and rewarding dramas.

His first film with Andersson shows a developing ability to probe the psychology of a rich, vital woman without losing his objectivity.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Thanks to international distributors sensationalizing its sexual frankness, this bittersweet drama of ill-fated first love helped establish Ingmar Bergman as a filmmaker.
