Review:

You need a map to figure out the complicated relationships in this Oscar Wilde-like satire about three couples, each of whose members is more interested in someone else's spouse than in his or her own. When one of the fellows acquires a huge gambling toll, his overly attentive sister-in-law (Ingrid Bergman) rushes in to cover it, much to the exasperation of her own partner and the indebted man's neglected wife. Bergman pulls off her role as a cynical, narcissistic queen bee very persuasively--never more so than when her character is threatened by a rich American cousin of similarly domineering sensibilities. Gustav Molander, who directed Bergman in the Swedish version of Intermezzo, smoothly navigates his way through the cross-currents of flirtation and unfulfilled marriage, yet manages to keep things relatively light if sharply perceptive. Molander also does well by a harrowing sequence in which one of the wives gets lost in a white-out snowstorm--a scary scene indeed. --Tom Keogh
