"Wonderfully funny, genuinely erotic." - Time Out London

Bergman scored his first big international success with this sparkling farce that won a special prize at Cannes for "Poetic Humor" and later served as the inspiration for both Stephen Sondheim's musical "A Little Night Music" and Woody Allen's homage A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S SEX COMEDY. An assorted group of straying spouses, jealous lovers, and lusty servants convene for a weekend at a country home, hoping that the summer night will smile upon them. In Swedish with English subtitles. New DCP digital restoration. (MR)
