Summer interlude by Ingmar Bergman( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Swedish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Touching on many of the themes that would define the rest of his legendary career, isolation, performance, the inescapability of the past, Ingmar Bergman's tenth film was a gentle drift toward true mastery. In one of the director's great early female roles, Maj-Britt Nilsson beguiles as an accomplished ballet dancer haunted by her tragic youthful affair with a shy, handsome student (Birger Malmsten). Her memories of the sunny, rocky shores of Stockholm's outer archipelago mingle with scenes from her gloomy present, most of them set in the dark backstage environs of the theater where she works. A film that the director considered a creative turning point, Summer interlude (sommarlek) is a reverie about life and death that unites Bergman's love of theater and cinema
