Movie Info

What is so rare, and cherishable, as an Ingmar Bergman comedy? All These Women concerns the sexual misadventures of cello-playing Jarl Kulle. Amidst his many romantic pursuits, the egotistical Kulle endeavors to get his life story published, "bribing" a writer by agreeing to perform the latter's musical compositions. Bergman regulars Eva Dahlbeck, Harriet Andersson and Bibi Andersson costar in All These Women, while the screenplay was cowritten by another stalwart member of the director's stock company, Erland Josephson. Originally titled For Att Inte Talla om alla dessa Kvindor, All These Women is better known in English-speaking countries as Now About All These Women. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for För Att Inte Tala Om Alla Dessa Kvinnor (All These Women) (Now About These Women)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Ingmar Bergman, who has tackled religion, sin, sex, music and muddled mores in elliptical but artistically distinguished film style, appears to be confused by comedy and color.

One of the rarest things in contemporary cinema -- an underrated Ingmar Bergman film.

A minor satire lambasting critics.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's a great idea, but one which works only sporadically well; at times it threatens to become every bit as pretentious as the people it is making fun of.

Minor Bergman satire.

TV Guide

Unhappily, the relentless atmosphere of forced merriment suggests tormented Ingmar willfully laboring himself into a state of mirth.

Audience Reviews for För Att Inte Tala Om Alla Dessa Kvinnor (All These Women) (Now About These Women)

Those who need to believe Ingmar Bergman was an irreproachable genius are advised to skip this horrifying turkey. A misfired sex farce, "All These Women" begins with the funeral of renowned cellist "Felix," then flashbacks to follow a prissy, pretentious music critic (portrayed in insufferably hammy fashion) who is staying at Felix's elegant estate. He's supposed to be preparing a biography, but he can't assemble his desired "personal details" because Felix avoids ever meeting him. Instead the reclusive musician's staff and multiple lovers (who also live in the mansion) just tease and distract the poor fool. The humor is as broad as anything found in Mel Brooks and early Woody Allen, with the antics including crossdressing, silly gun chases, title cards, smirking looks into the camera and incessant abuse of "Yes, We Have No Bananas," and the only positive is Bibi Andersson's girlish beauty. And anyway, it's hard to enjoy a comedy that's so obviously built on a sour grudge against professional critics. "All These Women" was Bergman's first color work, but the existing print looks washed out and is full of ugly green streaks and spots. For completists only!

Some were disappointed by Bergman directing a wacky comedy. I guess they expected him to just do the same thing over and over again, but then he wouldn't be Bergman. No deep messages, but quite a few laughs. My favorite gag: a dance as a symbolic sexually encounter. Well worth seeing.
