    (Svensk Filmindustri (SF))

Available uncut in the UK for the first time, Waiting Women was Ingmar Bergman’s 10th film as director and was his first attempt at a farce or comedy.

The film was made after his first internationally successful film, Summer Interlude in the spring of 1952 and elicited him further renown and success.

Four women, three of them sisters-in-law, await the return of their husbands from Stockholm to an old summer villa for a long-delayed reunion vacation. As the four women sit around the coffee table waiting the oldest begins to discuss her marriage to the oldest son, thus beginning a frank discussion on their marriages and the indiscretions that they have committed along the way.

Comedically describing situations that are as common today as they were when the film was made, this is Bergman at his most masterful.

This episodic drama from Bergman continued his fascination with exploring the battle of sexes from the female perspective. The comic finale is splendid and well worth waiting for.
