Edit
Trivia The film's then ground-breaking nudity led to its American distributor snapping up the film sight unseen and marketing it along the lines of a Russ Meyer picture. It remains the most widely seen Ingmar Bergman film in the US. See more »

Quotes Harry Lund: Monika, I'm going to start night school. You can become an engineer if you keep at it. I've always liked engines. I fixed the engine on the boat last autumn.
Monika Eriksson: You study to be an engineer, and then we'll get married, okay? Harry. I think I'm pregnant.
Harry Lund: What? Seriously?
Monika Eriksson: Hmm.
Harry Lund: We have to go back so I can start working. You need proper food.
Monika Eriksson: No, I'm not going back. I want summer to go on just like this. Harry, I don't know anyone as sweet as you.
Harry Lund: Monika, we have to make something real out of our lives. We'll care for each other. I'll study and get a decent job, so we can get married and have a nice house, you and me and the little one on its way.
Monika Eriksson: You'll come home from work and I'll have dinner ready. We'll take the children for Sunday walks. I won't work. I'll stay at home with the kids. We'll have nice clothes.
Harry Lund: We'll have a good life. We'll always stay together.
Monika Eriksson: Just you and me.
