Storyline

In Stockholm, the fashion photographer Susanne Frank misses her married lover Henrik Lobelius that lives in Gothenburg with his wife and children, and the naive twenty years old model Doris has a troubled relationship with her boy friend Palle Palt. Susanne schedules a session of photo shoots in Gothenburg with Doris, and once there, she calls Henrik for an encounter. Meanwhile, Doris meets an elegant middle age gentleman on the street, the Consul Otto Sönderby, who buys expensive gifts for her: a dress, a pair of Italian gloves and valuable pearl necklace. They spend the afternoon together in an amusement park and later they go to Otto's mansion, where they are interrupted by his wicked daughter Marianne. Susanne has a love affair with Henrik in her room, but they are interrupted by his cynical wife. The incidents in these encounters affect their perspective of love.

An Essay on Marriage and Passion.
25 March 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film talks to all of those concerns that each of us has to face, at one time or another, in our relationships. I cannot put into words what is depicted in this film... but I can say that anyone that appreciates the perversity of Eyes Wide Shut or Husbands and Wives (in how they treat the subject of marriage/commitment/relationships) should enjoy this film. In fact, I wouldn't doubt that this is the original and the best film to tackle the subject.

The subject matter is presented in a somewhat tragic sense, but I think the film is rather uplifting in its treatment when it is considered from beginning to end. The simplicity of the presentation also leaves the viewer with the sense that this is a very poetic film.

I highly recommend this film, especially for those who are sufficiently ancient to have suffered enough in love to understand its (love's) beauty.

Does that sound pathetic or what? But I think it's true.

Enjoy.
