Movie Info

Based on a play by Hjalmar Bergman, this Swedish film concentrates on the family of a brilliant but poverty-stricken scientist, played by Gosta Ekman. When Hakan Westergren, the eldest of Eckman's grown children, becomes engaged to a wealthy young woman, he refuses to allow her to support him. When it seems as though Westergren has forged his father's name on some promissory notes in order to raise money, the potential scandal nearly forces Eckman to give up the Nobel Prize he is about to receive. This domestic dilemma is solved (though not to everyone's satisfaction) and the family pride is saved. Swedenhielms might never have been released in the U.S. had it not been for the charming early presence of Ingrid Bergman, cast as Westergren's fiancee. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore
