Audience Reviews for Waiting Women

  • Dec 13, 2009
    I love this movie; although not amongst Bergman's best, it is very funny in parts and should not be shunned. Perhaps slightly overlong - each time I watch it I wait impatiently for the lift-scene near the end of the film - but very much worthwhile. Indeed, the scene in the lift with Gunnar Bjornstrand (great actor) and Eva Dahlberg is fascinating, funny and frivolous - for the year it was made.

    A personal favorite from the early works of Bergman and possibly the most inspiring one (remember Woody Allen's homage on the elevator scene in Manhattan Murder Mystery).Feisty in its soaring delight,the film creates a warm affection towards women and this mysterious characteristic that makes the opposite sex so unique,even in their troublesome.

    "waiting women" is ingmar bergman's estrogenic anthem on women whose worlds are inevitably intertwined with their beloved male beings. it's narrated into three folds of stories: first one is about a woman who suffers from the dreariness of marital life is having an illicit affair then strangely her relationship is reinstated afterwards. second one is on a random romance of a playgirl and a painter with commitment issue, but she succumbs to his love after being conceived of his child. the third one is an elevator-confinement of a matron and her grudgy husband, thru this incident, their marriage gets revitalized with passions and mutual understandings. the endings gets enclosed poetically with an eloped couple on a leafy boat wandering upon the lake to seek their ideal realization of absolute love. to dub this flick feministic would be inappropriate since none of those women could resist their men, and they sacrifice their pride for the superiority of love. it is a very feminine flick which celebrates the theme of amour. the only uniqueness would be bergmen's camera angle to transform the shade of a tree into the premise of carnival tavern. and some sequences are trully oversentimentalized with an european kind of romanticism, such as the luring scene of the painter delivering note accompanied by the guitar singing in a lonesome midnight to enchant our woman protagonist. the pace is lyrically restful with overflowing emotions expressed in visionalized tranquility.
