Storyline

After 15 years of marriage, David and Marianne have grown apart. David has had an affair with a patient of his and Marianne has got herself involved with her former lover Carl-Adam, who's also David's best friend. When she travels to Copenhagen to meet Carl-Adam, David takes the same train as she does, making it look coincidental. Spending time together remembering their past and talking about their future, they come to understand each other again, which leads to a reconciliation.

Surprisingly liberal for the 50's
21 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

This movie makes me wonder a number of things: how come Swedish acting is so bad now when it was so good back then, if liberal thoughts like those in this movie made it to the big screen back in the 50's, how come there was a revolution in the 60's, what did the general public think of this movie at the opening. In this movie having a fling is presented as good for the marriage. The girl who strongly dislikes her feminine sides, and much rather wants to be a bay is accepted. I don't really want to go into the plot much more than that, but it is definitely worth watching, I just wish they would have dropped Cupid at the end.
