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
Both in the ambiance and in its women's themes in this movie you can see unequivocally Bergman's influences. In particular It recalls Bergman's SECRETS OF WOMEN (1952)for the cast ( It's almost the same!)and for its episodic structure. The psychological search on women universe is another important link.
Anyway, although Mai Zetterling had abused it in her movies, I think that the flashback use is very interesting in this movie. It becomes, with the editing help, a concrete tragic matter and not only a way to tell the story. I give it a 6.
