Smiles of a Summer Night

1955 Rated NR 1hr 48m

Director Ingmar Bergman weaves an intricate romantic ruse with his film about a country estate that becomes a matchmaking haven in turn-of-the-century Sweden. During a long, lazy summer, eight singles gradually become four couples, often switching partners along the way. Some of Swedish cinema's most celebrated faces appear, including Gunnar Bjornstrand, Eva Dahlbeck, Harriet Andersson and Ulla Jacobsson.
