| The potential was great, not the actuality
Mai Zetterling apparently felt very much one with Agnes von Krusenstjerna and saw similarities in her own life. It is a pity that Zetterling wasn't able to tell her story in a very interesting way.

In the scene with the dinner on the boat I am reminded of Bergman's Fanny and Alexander, depicting happy people and the Swedish summer, young love and romance. Unfortunately, the film is only depressing after that as von Krusenstjerna becomes ill.

Stina Ekblad makes a magnificent job as the frail author and so does Erland Josephson as her husband/lover/co-author. The problem is that although they are both great actors, their lines sounds rather theatrical and unnatural.

Zetterling had the potential of making a classic movie with a great cast and I'm sorry to say that she failed.
