anglais Brilliant, romantic, fun! Bergman. The amorous outbursts of the social elite have perhaps never looked so interesting and natural, the dialogues in a similarly tuned story have never before sounded so true and bittersweet. Love is the only thing worth fretting about, breaking moral trends for and thinking out loud about on hot summer nights, and Bergman is one of the few who can make a hilarious farcical story about it without turning it into an unrealistic over-sweetened farce. Let's not be unhappy about love, let's watch Smiles of a Summer Night instead ;) 90% ()

anglais Based on my previous experience with Ingmar Bergman, I can say that he is useful rather for those who want to commit suicide or for those who want to increase the profits of antidepressant manufacturers, rather than for viewers who want to genuinely laugh. I went into this movie with hidden concerns because Bergman's comedy All These Women, which I've seen in the past, is by far the worst film from him that I've watched. The truth is that I didn't laugh once, which, however, doesn't say much about the quality of the movie. In fact, Smiles of a Summer Night is a pleasant historical comedy that may not be hilarious, but it leaves a positive impression. The dialogue is nicely polished, with sparks flying between the characters, and the screenplay is quite interesting. Overall impression: 60%. ()

anglais Comedies by Ingmar Bergman? Well, I have to say that I was a bit hesitant about what it would be like. And I remained hesitant even after watching it. It is wonderfully filmed, it has beautiful imagery, stunning set design, and at times excellent dialogues. It is interesting in terms of acting because you do not normally encounter such actors, which is a shame. Swedes definitely know how to act. However, as a whole, it didn't really resonate with me.

anglais Even after two years, the conceited husband has not forgiven his young new wife, and the overstimulation causes him to dream of his former lover, still a very attractive actress. The young wife, however, is more attracted to her stepson and the only entertainment she has is with her maid, who also does what she can. But the actress has a jealous lover and he has a passionate wife, but her husband is not jealous of her at all. The unraveling of these adventures is easy - all it takes is a few female intrigues and a night with everyone together in the countryside. And if that doesn't work, we have rollaway beds. All in all, a tolerable adventure with your favorite old Jarl Kulle, Eva Dahlbeck and others. A Bergman film like this won't kill anyone. ()

anglais Even a comedy satire by Bergman is Bergman. Interestingly initiated (and completed) themes, but it’s so crazily d-r-a-w-n o-u-t that it harms the movie. But the opening and closing quarter hour get A+ star in my book. P.S.: Jarl Kulle’s evil laughter is the essence of perfection. Without any hesitation, I would cast him in some B-horror about a mad scientist who wants to rule the world. ()
