Selflived teenage lovestory
11 May 2003 | by (Sthlm) – See all my reviews

Even though it has it's moments. it's not the best Bergmanfilm. A bit too little story (maybe that happens when you try to write about something that you experienced firsthand yourself as a 16 year old nerd boy) Best thing about this film is Annalisa Ericsson as a bad ballerina and the dirty rich old man portraid by Georg Funkquist. The lead actress, Maj-Britt Nilsson is O.K. and does give a nice performance, but her counterpart Birger Malmsten is terrible.

Lousy teatrical acting. The border between what the mirror' reflect and the reality is great! The fluid like state of the different time, past and present is good. I prefer the Sommaren med Monika which is in many ways similar,
