High and low done Molander style
20 July 2002 | by raskimonoSee all my reviews

This is Gustaf Molander's specialty - the study of classes and he does it again here. A careful study of an illegitimate son who has grown up in the circus but later learns his father is a rich wealthy man. The father brings him in to strike a romance with Ingrid Bergman, as a way to make him respectable and usher him into high society. The issues of class as he tries to adjust to his new society while trying to abandon the old are carefully handled and shown without emphasis but with subtlety. Accceptance is tough all around and lessons are learned by all. This is a melodrama done Swedish style and try and see the Ingmar Bergman influences in this movie that inspired his work and Gustaf Molander's work in general that is reflected in Ingmar's work.
