Ingmar Bergman's days behind the camera may be over, but he apparently still has a worthwhile story or two left to tell.

Powerful teaching tool for men trying to come to terms with their own wounded father inside.

There's little here you haven't seen in other artists' summer reminiscences. But there's something delicate and magical about this particular season, probably because of the knowledge that you are tapping directly into Bergman's childhood.

The ambiguity of the story, as well as the brooding nature of its subject matter, make for a slow and studious narrative structure that has little in the way of sustained development and payoff.

For many, lightweight Bergman can be more enjoyable than almost any other film work.

It's really little more than a single anecdote, but an anecdote so full of mirrors, so magically placed, that the film manages to reflect the future while also revealing new interpretations of the past.

Time Out

Immensely sympathetic, viewed either as a self-contained work or as part of the Bergman canon, it is written by Ingmar and directed by his son Daniel.
