Not that Devil-ish but a fine interpretation and pleasantly funny moments. Bergman's complex study in love / sentimental relationships is once more brought up on screen in this black comedy. Actors gathered for the occasion are at the top of their range.
Eccellente sfociata nella commedia da parte di quel mostro che era zio Ingmar. Spiccatamente teatrale,densa di luoghi comuni e credenze dell'epoca che inevitabilmente sfociano nella retorica,resta un'opera cmq frizzante grazie ai siparietti tra i personaggi della vicenda,guidati come burattini da un vero Maestro.
7/10 (19. 09. 2017). that strange feeling when in same year Bergman out his dramatic masterpiece The Virgin spring like from another era. But here, the last phrase of Ingmar through Gunnar Björnstrand was right about meaning of small win of Hell and big win of Heaven. Moral fantasy and little of "comedy".
