Now you know what to expect. In fact you're in possession of a significant plot spoiler. Or maybe I should say "plot."

It turned out to be both worse and better than the blurb. The blurb left out the madness, suicide, and fantasy of murder. But it ends on a slightly positive note.

Apart from that, it's got some good technique (photography, dialog, etc.), though not as good as Bergman would later develop. Mainly of interest to serious Bergman fans, I think.
