Illicit Interlude, 29 February 2008
Author: Michael_Elliott from Louisville, KY

Illicit Interlude (1951)

** (out of 4)

Ingmar Bergman film about a woman (Maj-Britt Nilsson) who looks back at her first love, which took place during the summer and its tragedy that stuck with her throughout life. Like the above film, this one here shows a lot of nice touches but in the end the director just wasn't able to pull it off like some of his later films. Once again the biggest asset is the performance from Nilsson who delivers all the goods and comes off wonderfully well in the youthful part of her character. There are many nice, touching moments but in the end there's just too many dry and slow spots.
