Summer Interlude

July 28 at 4:00
East Building Auditorium

A ballet dancer recalls a relationship she once had during an idyllic Swedish summer and the poignant aftermath of her loss of this love. Bergman based the film on his own early love affair. “Summer Interlude was close to my heart for a long time. I felt that this was the first time the medium obeyed me, and my love seemed requited. I happened to see the film a couple of weeks ago. I found it . . . amateurish with some short instances of truth and decency” — Ingmar Bergman. (1951, subtitles, 96 minutes)
