Smiles of a Summer Night [1955] [Criterion] (BLU)

Ingmar Bergman

BUY $35.98


After fifteen films that received mostly local acclaim, the 1955 comedy Smiles Of A Summer Night (Sommarnattens leende) at last ushered in an international audience for Ingmar Bergman. In turn-of-the-century Sweden, four men and four women of different classes attempt to navigate the laws of attraction. During a weekend in the country, the women collude to force the men's hands in matters of the heart, exposing their pretensions and insecurities along the way. Chock-full of flirtatious propositions and sharp witticisms delivered by such Swedish screen legends as Gunnar Bjornstrand and Harriet Andersson, Smiles Of A Summer Night is one of cinema's great erotic comedies.
