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.

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