Smiles of a Summer Night – Ingmar Bergman

We’ll watch a little of the film before Bad Day at Black Rock.

In the beginning of the Twentieth Century, the successful fifty years old lawyer Fredrik Egerman has been married for three years with his naive nineteen years old wife Anne, who is still virgin. His adult son from his former marriage, Henrik, lives in celibate preparing to be a priest.

and so begins the story of this film by acclaimed director Ingmar Bergman which was nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes.  It was the first of Bergman’s films to bring the director international success.
