Wonderful underrated film by Liv Uhlman.
The former actress directs wonderfully, no doubt having absorbed some of the talents of her director/husband Ingmar Bergman. Bergman wrote the script for Sophie ... about an unhappily married Jewish woman who has obeyed her parents by marrying a distant cousin instead of the gentile painter with whom she is in love. So carefully put together that one finds oneself totally absorbed in the warm atmosphere Miss Uhlman has created.
