Summer With Monika

Working together in theatre and cinema, Bergman and Harriet Andersson enjoyed a passionate relationship during the early 50’s, and SUMMER WITH MONIKA, much beloved of Truffaut and Godard, reveals a new dimension to Bergman’s talent. He films this sweet ‘n’ sour escapade in the archipelago in stark, naturalistic tones. Eroticism incarnate, Andersson exhibits a fierce, wriggling intelligence far removed from the vulnerable gentility of earlier Bergman females.
