    (Svensk Filmindustri (SF))

During a train journey from Switzerland to Sweden, through war-torn Germany, a married couple are intent on tearing each other apart. Their bitterness is not only the result of his love affairs, but also of her inability to concieve, due to the effects of a previous abortion...

The most commercially successful of Bergman's early films is also something of an artistic watershed, as it waves flashbacks, dreams and subplots into an engaging dramatic whole, which places a new emphasis on the female perspective.

Birgit Tengroth, who plays Viola, also wrote the source stories.
