Dated Sentimental Lives of Two Women
20 February 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In Stockholm, the fashion photographer Susanne Frank (Eva Dahlbeck) misses her married lover Henrik Lobelius (Ulf Palme) that lives in Gothenburg with his wife and children, and the naive twenty years old model Doris (Harriet Andersson) has a troubled relationship with her boy friend Palle Palt (Sven Lindberg). Susanne schedules a session of photo shoots in Gothenburg with Doris, and once there, she calls Henrik for an encounter. Meanwhile, Doris meets an elegant middle age gentleman on the street, the Consul Otto Sönderby (Gunnar Björnstrand), who buys expensive gifts for her: a dress, a pair of Italian gloves and valuable pearl necklace. They spend the afternoon together in an amusement park and later they go to Otto's mansion, where they are interrupted by his wicked daughter Marianne (Kerstin Hedeby-Pawlo). Susanne has a love affair with Henrik in her room, but they are interrupted by his cynical wife. The incidents in these encounters affect their perspective of love.

"Kvinnodröm" is one of the minor movies of Bergman in spite of not being a bad film. The sentimental story is too dated in the present days: the naive attitude of Doris with Otto is very silly, and the situation of Susanne is typical of the 40's and 50's, with a woman "dying" of non-corresponded or impossible love. The cinematography, as usual, is amazing, and I particularly liked very much the scene with Eva Dahlbeck split between light and shadow in the train to Gothenburg. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Sonhos de Mulheres" ("Dreams of Women")
