Summer Interlude (Ingmar Bergman, 1951)

***
Sweden



Hailed once upon a time as the first sign of Ingmar Bergman's maturation as an artist, this mildly pretentious love story between a ballerina and a fresh-faced fan contains several plodding bits of reflecting on cracked personas, the creeping spectre of death and, naturally, God's silence. The more atmospheric passages are quiet and subtle, and include an entrancing early sequence where the brooding heroine encounters an old woman strolling near the seaside.
