Bergman fans will discover that it's not a typical film of his, and is rather more realistic than his later films, and some would call it "minor." But by any standards, it's an excellent film, gorgeously made and emotionally powerful.
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.
