...a breakthrough for Bergman: his first film built around a strong, assertive, sure woman and the first shot extensively on location, where the natural world becomes a defining reflection of the lives of his characters.

Bergman's trademarked brooding is tinged with a surprising hopefulness. Even if love can't last, there is still art, and that's not a bad consolation prize.

Its dark power derives from the tension between the adult woman at the movie's centre and the girl this woman remembers being.

In hindsight, Summer Interlude looks and feels like a number of Bergman's subsequent (and arguably greater) films, but at the time, it must have seemed like something entirely new.

It plays out as Bergman's Red Shoes, that's gracefully done as a French romantic drama.

The sense of fate that descends over the drama is very much Bergman's own -- cruel, distant, ultimately imponderable.

One of Bergman's favorites among his own films, this movie features a complex episodic structure and makes fine use of lighting to create an effective ambience for the flashback sequences.
