Storyline

Stockholm, 1915. Three women, Agda, Adele and Angela are about to give birth in a clinic. All three recall their past, especially the circumstances that led them to this hospital room. Agda, a housemaid made pregnant by a young middle-class man, has just married a homosexual artist. Adele, married to a farmer, suffers from frigidity, and is expecting a baby which is practically the product of a rape by her husband. As for Angela, a young woman from aristocratic background, she is waiting to give life to an illegitimate child after throwing herself into the arms of fifty-year-old Casanova. In these conditions will the three children to be born be happy? Written by Guy Bellinger

Bergman-influenced, but interesting.
4 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story of three women from different, but related, backgrounds about to give birth in a hospital in Sweden around the start of World War I.

Via inter-cut flashbacks we are shown how they ended up in their situation.

Often beautiful Sven Nykvist photo and many great directorial flourishes from director Mai Zetterling makes this a treat.

The parallels with Bergman are many. For instance, apart from Mr. Nykvist, many of the actors have appeared in various Bergman productions, the themes dealt with here are very similar to various Bergman films, and so on. Dissimilar enough to be interesting though.

Has some very interesting scenes that I would imagine were very controversial at the time, such as two gay men frolicking and getting mock-married in a church, a graphic shot of a baby's birth, some female nudity, a lesbian kiss, etc..
