Straightforward story of a woman who is satisfied with her husband until the arrival of a stranger. The stranger soon has her yearning for a life she has never known. Bergman's first English film lacks the sophistication of his earlier work.

We just saw Elliott Gould's private copy of this film at the film festival in Port Townsend, Washingon. We sat right next to him during the show and then stayed for a Q and A time afterwards. I really enjoyed the film. I am sure that many of us could identify with the main characters in the film. I thought photo closeups were done extremely well. Elliott and BiBi were a great match. I highly recommend this film. It would have, however, been nice to see an end that would have made me feel "good".
