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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

simply great
23 January 2008 | by (NY, USA (mostly)) – See all my reviews

This is a "minor" Bergman's work indeed, nevertheless a great piece of cinema, scene after scene after scene. And if you belong to those who would rather watch Bergman than some Hollywood trash, and somehow missed this work, then yet another great one hour twenty minutes await you. Love is a timeless subject, and this movie will always have its small audience. And for this type of viewer a review that dissects it all is not necessary. Other folks should simply move on and watch something else that fits their intellectual and spiritual capacities.

By the way, the rating of 'Dreams' = the rating of 'Beowolf'. Such is a sad and pathetic state of human condition.
