"This constant sense of flirtation with truth is what is so delightful about THE DEVIL'S EYE, Bergman having tremendous fun with these ambiguous characters, delivering a clever script that has an unusually witty and light-hearted take on the director's usual subject matter." - Noel Megahey, DVD Times

One of Bergman's most underrated films, THE DEVIL'S EYE ranks with the more celebrated SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT as the best of his comedies. The title comes from the proverb, "A woman's chastity is a sty in the devil's eye." Vexed by the virtue of a vicar's luscious daughter (Andersson), Satan sends his celebrated tenant Don Juan (Kulle) on a mission to corrupt the troublesome virgin. A series of touching and ironic twists leaves one wondering whether heaven or hell is the ultimate victor. In Swedish with English subtitles. New DCP digital restoration. (BS)
