In a summer house in the Stockholm archipelago, three wives recount an adventure from their marriages while awaiting their husbands’ return: Anita Björk’s dalliance with old flame Jarl Kulle; Maj-Britt Nilsson’s impressionistically rendered remembrances of a Paris affair; and battling couple Eva Dahlbeck and Gunnar Björnstrand’s romance rekindled when stuck in an elevator overnight. Ranked Best Swedish film of 1952/1953 in a critics’ poll. (1952, subtitles, 107 minutes)
