Loving Couples

Älskande par

Directed by Mai Zetterling
Sweden, 1964
  • Swedish

Three expectant mothers from different backgrounds think back over their lives while waiting for their impending births in a Stockholm hospital. Adapted from the controversial novel by Agnes von Krusenstjerna.

Our take

You know Ingmar Bergman—but do you know Mai Zetterling? A Swedish actress, Zetterling leapt to directing with this rebellious, controversial debut, an examination of sex so frank that it got her booted from Cannes! Starring Bergman muse Harriet Andersson and shot by the legendary Sven Nykvist.
