In this sparkling Swedish take on screwball comedy, Ingrid Bergman excels as the frustrated spouse of a busy industrialist with conservative views about how his wife should behave in public. Husband and wife retire with two other couples to a ski lodge, where director Gustaf Molander weaves dark themes into the sextet’s quarrels and flirtations. The arrival of an American investor stirs the waters and forces revelations, as Bergman’s character, who initially appears to be catty and faithless, is revealed as sweet, sympathetic, and heartbroken.

Ingrid Bergman’s work in her native Sweden was an early showcase for her dazzlingly precocious talent and emotional depth.
