My rating: 7
26 August 2013 | by kekcaSee all my reviews

We have seen such movies that touch existential problems of the social being and they all are same in searching of the leading motive in its existence. They all lead the being modus of the existence to the mood in which is possible the phenomenon of love.

In Bergman's style this movie is pretty human and realistic. It tells about the one's fight with himself, self-overwhelming, egocentricity and egotism, dreams for ruling in the world like a semi-god presence dressed in body; to accepting the other, sobering, becoming a man, family and children.

The image of the protagonist shows us hard but not in any case unpleasant character, sunk in honestly presented true realism of life, washed and ironed after being dingy with light postmodern delusions.

Known to everyone story told in unknown way. In moments too long fragments with concert plays are not able to spoil this movie. On the contrary.
