(Sommarnattens leende, Ingmar Bergman, Sweden
1955, 108 min., Swedish w/ subtitles)
Summer Abroad. An uncharacteristic comedy from Ingmar Bergman and an international success, Smiles of a Summer Night solidified the filmmaker’s reputation. Set at the turn of the century and recalling the delicate wit of Shaw and Wilde, Summer Night follows four men and four women as they swap partners and vows after imbibing a sensual wine.
