gradient Bergman but bad plot
14 May 2000 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

While Bergman is gradient as ever in this early movie of hers, the plot on the whole is disappointing. The murdering scene even seems ridiculous with the unsurprising coincidence and unbelievable clumsiness. What a waste for Bergman!
