The third known as the Faith Trilogy after Through a Glass Darkly (1961) and Winter Light (1963) but this one is rather different. There is even only one mention of God and Bergman found the film very different and said, 'the problem doesn't exist anymore. Nothing, absolutely nothing at all as emerged out of all these ideas of faith and scepticism.' Gunnel Lindblom both with Bergman's films is particularly great in this one as well, of course, the splendid Ingrid Thulin. Jorgen Lindstrom was the 12 year old boy is really good and all through the two women. He was also in Night Games (1966) but never did much more as he was older. The fantastic and different like film, did have a problem at the time because of the sensation and scandal of the sexual content. The masturbation and the other scenes including two others of the couple having sex and an anonymous couple in the audience of the music-hall, not even mentioned are the dwarfs performing and back at the hotel. It is all so amazing and such a change in just a couple of years.
