Storyline

Herr Sleeman kommer (Mr. Sleeman Is Coming) is a 1917 one-act play by the Swedish author Hjalmar Bergman. The main character is an orphaned young woman who is about to be married off to an unappealing but rich old man, Mr. Sleeman, at the instigation of her aunts who have taken charge of her. Bergman infuses the situation with overtones of rueful pessimism concerning life in general. Written by Wikipedia

bitter
8 May 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Maybe, not for story must see it. because the themes are familiar and the atmosphere is well known. but for actors. and for the mix of Tchekov and Ibsen. for the too clear definition of life. bitter, remembering the old stories abouts selfish aunts and poor girls, marriage as business and the love who is enough for save. but the lead virtue are the actors. Bibi Andersson as the young Anne Marie, Max von Sydow as the hunter. and the aunts as living portraits from the literature of XIX century in Dickens style. a bitter story. touching and not only. because it is beautiful explore of appearences and innocence and words with same texture and duty. and it is enough.
