It is first and best an Ingrid Bergman delivery system, and you can never really have too much of that, wouldn't you agree?

A remake of the similarly titled Swedish film,"Intermezzo" is a classic tale of romance from 1939. It is also a great glimpse Ingrid Bergman's highly developed talents at just 24-years-old.

There isn't much here in the way of surprises, but as glossy Hollywood romances go, it's a pretty darn good one.

The love story that introduced Bergman to America. Her beauty is this film's main asset.

Audience Reviews for Intermezzo


An average film, elevated by an impressive and touching performance by Ingrid Bergman, totally sincere in her delivery, in her Hollywood debut.

Heartbreaking ending. Each lover had to go his and her separate way to fulfill their very different destinies, even though their talents brought them together. I enjoyed the music score the most.

Oh so predictable and such a waste of time. This melodramatic story of a man who falls in love with another woman and leaves his wife, but soon regrets it, is overused. This movie doesn't offer anything new, and the acting isn't even that great, even though Bergman is in it.
