Even though the movie itself wasn't that successful and some critics
even stated that it was one of the greatest film-flops in the history
of Hollywood and Ingrid Bergman's career, I can just say: Non-sense!!
Of course, it IS a challenge to see Ingrid, the lovely Ilsa Lund from
Casablanca or funny Anna Kalman from Indiscreet, in the part of the
revengeful BAD Lady but oh, what a GREAT challenge!! It is a pleasure
to watch her unused cynical and sarcastic behaviour. Even though she
starred Carla Zachanassian differently than the book-character, she
does an awesome job. It's a pity that she didn't play more such "bad"
parts, which she can realize just perfectly!!
A must-have for people who just think of Ingrid Bergman being GOOD from
head to foot ;) ...
