In turn-of-the-century Sweden, four men and four women attempt to navigate the laws of attraction. During a weekend in the country, the women collude to force the men’s hands in matters of the heart, exposing male pretensions and insecurities along the way.
Contesting with their fidelity and morality, the richly-drawn and endlessly witty central quartet of characters in Ingmar Bergman’s dual marriage plots may be those of a tragicomedy, instead of a simple farce. An amour fou with two of the Swedish auteur’s biggest stars: Harriet and Bibi Andersson.
