"Bergman's second film, a romantic drama set in post-war Sweden, remains a solid example of the auteur's early work. Maggi and David, two outsiders with trouble pasts, meet by chance at a railway station and fall in love. They decide to start a new life together, but their happiness comes under threat from a series of misfortunes and set backs. Distinguished by excellent performances and assured direction, 'It rains on our love' is an affecting portrait of the bond between two people and a damning critique of the closed-mindedness of the period."--Container

Prison by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

6 editions published in 2006 in Swedish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based in and around a movie studio this experimental and intriguing picture is essentially a film within a film. A director is told by one of his old professors that the world is in the dominion of the devil, and decides to make the claim the subject of his latest picture. He then passes the idea onto a young journalist who is coincidently going through his own personal hell with his prostitute girlfriend and her violent pimp. This is a fascinating film, not only for its thematic tussle between the attraction of suicide and the comfort of faith, but for its many stylistic endeavors"--Container
