“Rossellini’s spirit pervades this gritty waterfront drama, which gave Bergman his first box-office success. It also marked his earliest collaboration with longtime cinematographer Gunnar Fischer and caused a stir abroad with its frank discussion of maternal cruelty, premarital sex, and abortion. Bergman devoted as much time to capturing the atmosphere of Gothenburg’s docks and factories as he did the hesitant romance between working-class waif Nine-Christine Jönsson and Bengt Eklund, the sailor who had thwarted her suicide bid. Seven decades on, this retains a noirish potency” —  British Film Institute. (1948, subtitles, 100 minutes)
