In one word, amazing!
10 October 2000 | by violetteSee all my reviews

I cannot express how amazing this film was and I'm shocked it didn't grab any Oscars. Bergman is heart-wrenching as the psychologically tortured woman wronged as a teenager. Her performance is both realistic and touching as the bitter woman who's so desperate to find peace within herself she resorts to revenge, bribery, and murder. One of the most underrated films of all time, unfortunately, but it's up there in my top 5 list of the greatest films ever made. If you love Quinn or Bergman, a must-see. If you love an excellent flick, a must-see.
